iNEXT workshop on macromolecular interactions

iNEXT: Infrastructure for NMR, EM and X-rays for Translational Research

The aim of this iNEXT training and dissemination activity is to provide training to existing and potential users of iNEXT facilities, and to showcase the development of new services and applications developed in iNEXT Joint Research Activities, all in connection with methods for analyzing macromolecular interactions. Towards this aim we have assembled an excellent team of speakers who will teach the use of such methods, their advantages and civets. During the workshop a number of registrants will have the opportunity to present their work in a short oral presentation. The workshop will span from the 1st of December in the afternoon till the 3rd of December in the afternoon. The workshop will be held at the guest house in Kibutz Eilot, just outside of Eilat, Israel. Following the workshop, a four day conference on the molecular basis of protein-protein interactions takes place in Eilat. Participants of the workshop are encouraged to participate also in that meeting, with a fantastic list of speakers lined up.

Registration for the iNEXT workshop is limited to 30 people. The registration, including 2 nights and half board is free if you are coming from the EU or an associated country. For other participants it is 150€.
