Integrated structural cell biology

April 4, 2014

July 07 - Aug 01 2014, Les houches

This summer school provides an exceptional opportunity to develop a broad overview of the state-of-art developments in integrated structural cell biology, to meet in a nice environment both senior lecturers who are world leaders in their field, as well as students and early-stage researchers from different countries, and all of this in a beautiful environment.

Participants will learn how a biological problem can be tackled using an integrated approach, going from atomic resolution to a whole organism level. This multi-scale approachwill be illustrated using two examples (viral infection and flower development). General concepts will be introduced through these examples, and the school is intended for a wide audience of biologists or physicists curious to learn how important biological questions can currently be addressed with the state-of-the-art tools and methods.

The school is mainly intended for PhD students, post-docs or early-stage researchers from all countries. All the lectures will be given in English. The number of participants is limited to improve the exchanges between students and lecturers. A few grants covering the registration fees (but not travel expenses) are available.

Important novel developments are expected in the coming years that may well introduce paradigm shifts in biological science. The objective of this course is to prepare the next generation of PIs to become major actors in the development or application of these breakthroughs. By exposing students and early-stage researchers to the panoply of approaches available to the contemporary structural biologist we hope to prepare them to integrate these new methods that are not necessarily taught (yet!) even at the level of a master degree, or that are difficult to teach because of issues of interdisciplinary.
