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, and our list of TOP SPEAKERS!, 
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
