Dear Colleagues,
we hereby announce a 4-day course on “Integrating X-ray crystallography 
and scattering with electron microscopy”. The course is funded by i-NEXT 
and will be held at NOVA ITQB, Oeiras (nearby Lisbon), Portugal, May 2 
to 5, 2016.

The course covers a multidisciplinary approach to study the structure of 
challenging proteins, focusing on membrane proteins and large complexes. 
The basic principles will be provided for each addressed technique
(Macromolecular Crystallography, Mass Spectrometry and Electron 
Microscopy); their applications in biological systems, major benefits 
and limitations will also be discussed.

The Workshop is organized with lectures in the mornings followed by 
hands-on training. The course is aimed primarily at PhD students and 
young Post-Doctoral researchers interested in Structural Biology.
Confirmed speakers are Jose Maria Carazo, Dmitri Svergun and Isabel de 

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 February 23. Please send your application to 
combstruct2016 at itqb.unl.pt. Registration fee is 180Eur including 
accommodation. More information can be found at 

The Organizers,
Margarida Archer, José A. Brito (ITQB-UNL) and Jose Maria Carazo
