It is a pleasure to again invite PhD- and other students (or post docs) to the Nordic-Baltic School of Neutron Scattering, co-arranged by NNSP and SwedNess.
The course gives 4 ECTS points and is meant as an introduction to the technique where no prerequisites are needed.
Unfortunately, this year the event will take place virtually and will be held over 13 work days: 20 October to 5 November, with optional Math/Physics catch-up on 14+15 October. We have a series of international experts and previous students from the course presenting their insight knowledge and a dedicated team to arrange e-learning to follow up on the presentations.
In addition, there will be a note set covering (mostly) all of basic neutron scattering techniques.
Registration is mandatory, both for SwedNess students and for students enrolled in a university in the Nordic/Baltic countries.Deadline for registration is 30 September 2021.
For international students, we reserve the rights to limit the number of participants, due to the load on the e-learning system. The school is free for all.

EMBO Practical Course
Biomolecular interaction analysis 2021: From molecules to cells | 25-29 October | ONLINE
The practical course Biomolecular interaction analysis: from molecules to cells, which has run every other year in Porto since 2012, has its 5th edition from October 25 until October 29, 2021, at i3S.
This practical course aims at a multidisciplinary approach to the study of molecular interactions from and in biological systems, integrating biochemical/biophysical methodologies with live microscopy techniques.
The course will cover a range of methods used in the kinetics and thermodynamics characterization of binding events, such as:
• Isothermal Titration Calorimetry (ITC)
• Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR)
• Microscale Thermophoresis (MST)
• Electrically Switchable nanolevers (switchSENSE)
The bridge to in vivo will be crossed with the introduction of advanced light microscopy techniques for the live cell imaging of protein-protein interactions by:
• Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) and
• Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM)
to study the dynamic interactions of proteins within the living cell.
In this new online format the course will include pre-recorded talks/tutorials made available before the course including introduction to the technologies, equipment and best practices. Practical sessions will focus on sample preparation, experimental design and execution and various data analysis workflows.
