Awarded training schools
23rd AUC Workshop and Symposium, University of Glasgow (UK), 23-28 July, 2017.
Proposers: Alexandra Solovyova & Olwyn Byron.
School Topics: Experimental design and the latest AUC data analysis software from the world experts in this area followed by a research symposium on AUC and complementary approaches: methodological development, combination with orthogonal techniques (SAXS, SANS, SPR, MST, SEC-MALLS etc), application in biosciences and material sciences.
ARBRE-MOBIEU School “Atomic Force Microscopy coupled to Inverted Fluorescence microscopy”, i3S – INEB, Porto (P), 15-17 November 2017.
Proposer: Manuela Bràs.
School Topic: Focussed training on the AFM/IFM techniques, with the opportunity to learn about the determination of morphometric parameters and the characterization of biomechanical properties of biological samples. Students will also learn how to use different software for the analysis of the data arising from these techniques. http://www.ineb.up.pt/events/upcoming-events/workshop-atomic-force-microscopy-coupled-inverted-fluorescence-microscopy
ARBRE-MOBIEU School “MOLECULES IN(ter)ACTION: from in vitro to zebrafish”, AteN Center/CHUB, Institute of Biophysics, Palermo (I), 6-9 February 2018.
Proposers: Maurizio Leone & Valeria Vetri.
School Topics: Advanced Spectroscopy and Microscopy Techniques (Raman, AFM, pulsed EPR, fluorescence, confocal and TIRF microscopy) are presented together with the use of the Zebrafish Model as a tool for live imaging and molecular biology analysis http://www.unipa.it/amministrazione/atencenter/training-school-2018/
FEBS “Advanced Course on Integrated Approaches to Biomolecular Interactions”, Sevilla (E) 7-11 May 2018.
Proposer: Antonio Diaz-Quintana.
School topic: Protein ligand interactions and protein-protein interactions by NMR, ITC, SPR; protein quality control by MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry; global fit analysis of the data by interaction models. https://biomolecularinteractions.febsevents.org
ARBRE-MOBIEU, Molecular Machines and Native MS COST Actions “14th Greta Pifat Mrzljak International School of Biophysics”, Split (HR), 23 August-1 September 2018.
Proposer: Tomislav Vuletić.
School topic: Insight into several biophysical techniques (NMR, EPR, FTIR, Raman, mass spectrometry, AFM, fluorescence and super-resolution microscopies) to study macromolecular assemblies, interactions at biological and biocompatible interfaces, physical properties of bio-inspired systems. These topics are complemented with computational and theoretical approaches, including modelling and simulation. http://school.ifs.hr/
FEBS Practical Course “Hydrodynamic and thermodynamic analysis of biological macromolecules and their interactions: multi-method approaches and global data analyses”. Prague (CZ), 23-28 September 2018. Co-sponsored by ARBRE-MOBIEU, Instruct and IUBMB.
Proposer: Ondřej Vaněk.
School topic: Theoretical and practical training in data analysis in several modern biophysical methods for monitoring and quantifying molecular interactions (AUC, ITC, SPR, MST, and fluorescence-based techniques). The course will put emphasis on the complementarity of these different methods and on the combined analysis of datasets coming from different methods. https://biomacromoldynamics2018.febsevents.org
EMBO Practical Course “Biomolecular Interaction Analysis 2018: From molecules to cells”, Porto (Portugal) 29 October – 3 November 2018.
Proposer: Frederico Silva.
School topics: Multidisciplinary approach to the study of molecular interactions from and in biological systems, integrating biochemical/biophysical methodologies (ITC,SPR, PWR, MST, BLI) with live microscopy techniques (FRET and FCCS). The results obtained during the practicals will be then processed, analysed and discussed with the tutors. http://meetings.embo.org/event/18-biomolecule
ARBRE-MOBIEU & BioBrilluin COST Actions “Emerging Tools in Biomechanics: from tissues down to single molecules”, Venice (I), 4-8 February 2019.
Proposers: Mauro Dalla Serra & Silvia Caponi.
School topics: At the interface between biology, physics and mechanics the school will survey recent advances and the emerging techniques able to probe mechanical properties of biological material. The school will introduce the topic at different length scales, from molecular and sub-cellular approaches (AFM, AFS), to single cells (Brillouin microspectroscopy, MEMS) and extending towards multicellular organization and tissues (nanoindentation, US micro-elastography). http://tiny.cc/BiophysicSchool-2019
