Programme features

Close contact between the students and the lecturers
From our previous experience, close contact between the students and the lecturers is guaranteed. They will not only meet during the lessons and the discussions but will also have lunches together and will spend free time together at the beach and during the evenings.

Small tutorial groups
keep the students and tutors together even after evening sessions for dinner groups.

Lunch groups may be organized to pair speakers with rotating groups of participants

Lectures
will cover both the biophysical background of specific methods and discuss the integration with other methods to solve particularly difficult problems in biology. In this way we seek to stimulate informed, expertise-based discussions on how to distinguish and prioritize individual methods addressing specific biophysical, biochemical and cell biological questions, and how to integrate several methods to address and validate models of more general biological questions.

Group discussions Thursday will discuss particular topics in the perspective of the participants and their own expertise. The participants are encouraged to include their own project experiences and questions, which at that time have all been presented through posters.

Journal Club Saturday will introduce and discuss interdisciplinary papers of structural biology with participants divided into smaller groups that each cover all or most of the relevant expertise.

Panel discussion Friday will reflect on the whole week and have both students and speakers on the panel.

Poster prize will be selected by a poster committee selected among the speakers.

The students prize will be selected by the organizing committee and honour a participant, who has engaged really well in the workshop.

Posters
All participants should bring a poster of their current research project which will be displayed throughout the Lecture Course.

There are poster sessions during which you will be required to stand beside your poster and discuss it with interested people.

The recommended poster size is Format A0 (84 cm length by 118 cm height).
