Subject: Course on “Structure and Function of Membrane Proteins- a
multidisciplinary approach”
Dear colleagues,

We would like to announce the Instruct-sponsored 4-day course
“Structure and Function of Membrane Proteins- a multidisciplinary
approach”, to be held at ITQB, Oeiras (nearby Lisbon), Portugal, from
5 to 8 November 2013.

The course will address several techniques for the structural and
functional characterization of membrane proteins, with special
emphasis on Macromolecular Crystallography, Mass Spectrometry,
Electron Microscopy and Nuclear Magnetic Ressonance. The information
provided by each technique, their applications in biological systems,
major benefits and limitations will be discussed.

The course is organized with lectures in the mornings and interactive
tutorials in the afternoons. In addition, the selected applicants are
grouped and each group works on a case study (based on 2-3 papers
covering techniques of interest and a questionnaire) and gives a
presentation at the end of the course.

The course is aimed primarily at PhD students, young Post-Doctoral
researchers and others with research activities involving structural
biology of membrane proteins. Participants will be limited to 20.
Candidate selection will be based on a short CV, a motivation letter
from the applicant, and a recommendation letter from the supervisor.

Registration deadline is September 16, please send your application to
membstruct2013 at itqb.unl.pt .
