Dear colleagues,

please be informed that online applications are accepted for the 
following course:

** 7TH NCCR PRACTICAL COURSE AND EMBN SUMMER SCHOOL
IN 2D MEMBRANE PROTEIN CRYSTALLIZATION AND OBSERVATION

October 20 - 24, 2008, Basel, Switzerland
www.structuralbiology.uzh.ch/membranecourse2008.asp

** Course topics include
Membrane protein expression, solubilization and purification, detergent 
properties and interactions with lipids and proteins, functional 
analysis of membrane proteins, 2D-crystallization, electron microscopy 
of 2D crystals, image processing, application of other techniques: AFM, 
IR-spectroscopy, solid-state NMR

** Speakers
Nora Eifler, Andreas Engel, Joachim Heberle, Ralf Kaldenhoff, Daniel 
Lévy, Xiao-Dan Li, Daniel J. Müller, Ansgar Philippsen, Hervé Rémigy,

** Keynote lecture by Hartmut Oschkinat

The course is primarily directed to PhD students and postdocs with some 
previous experience in the structural biology of membrane proteins or 
related fields wishing to learn more on 2D crystallization and EM/AFM 
observation technologies. A limited number of EU fellowships is 
available for the support of junior scientists attending this course.

The course supported by the European Union Marie Curie Conferences and 
Training Courses Program, as well as by the Swiss NCCR Structural 
Biology. In agreement with EU guidelines we would like to particularly 
encourage female scientists to participate and to apply for financial 
support.

** Interested candidates are encouraged to apply online 
on www.structuralbiology.uzh.ch/membranecourse2008.asp. Application 
deadline will be September 12, 2008. We will be able to accept 25 
participants to this course.

Best regards,
Patrick Sticher

P.S.
Also this fall: 6th International NCCR Symposium on New Trends in 
Structural Biology,
September 8 + 9, 2008 in Zürich, Switzerland. Registration and
