Dear colleagues,

Under the auspices of the Belgian Biophysical Society, and supported by the 
Doctoral School of Natural Sciences – UGent, we would like to invite you to the 
School on X-ray and Neutron Diffraction Techniques, hosted by Ghent University, 
which will be held at the VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research in 
Zwijnaarde (Ghent), Belgium, on May 28-30, 2018.
The aim of the school is to provide a survey of the broad range of X-ray and 
neutron scattering methods and their application to investigate biological 
structures and processes. Starting from an introduction to the basics of X-ray 
and neutron scattering we will move on to their application to study proteins 
and their complexes with other proteins or nucleic acids, to probe 
lipid/membrane structures and biological processes such as bacterial 
metabolism. Our program will also provide a survey of the state-of-the-art in 
terms of research facilities available worldwide to enable experimental work 
employing X-ray and neutron scattering. 

Our school is organized such that no prior knowledge of scattering techniques 
is required.


For further information, venue and registration, please see the website: <> 

Please do not hesitate to forward this to colleagues who might be interested.

Looking forward seeing you on May 28-30, 2018!


On behalf of the organizers:

Kristof Van Hecke (UGent), Filip Meersman (UAntwerpen) and Savvas Savvides
