Event details

Seventh International Workshop on X-ray Radiation Damage to Biological Crystalline Samples will be held at Diamond Light Source, UK from 13:00 March 14th to 13:00 March 16th 2012.

Registration will be open from late morning on Wednesday 12 March in Diamond House atrium. Please head to the main Reception gate and they will then direct you to Diamond House. The first talk begins at 1pm.

This series of workshops was originally concerned with the effects of radiation damage during investigation of protein structures by X-ray crystallography. Other techniques of structural biology are now being included to ensure greater information exchange. The workshop will therefore be of interest to all those using ionising radiation to examine biological structures at the molecular level.

It will consist of around 30 talks of around 20 minutes each allowing plenty of time for questions and discussion

Talks will be grouped under the topics below. Confirmed speakers are indicated under each one.

1. Basic understanding of radiation damage mechanisms.

Ian Carmichael, Kristina Djinovic Carugo, James Holton, Alke Meents
 
2. Temperature-dependent (including RT) radiation damage.
Sasha Popov, Robert Thorne, Martin Weik
 
3. Reducing and mitigating radiation damage
Elspeth Garman, Robin Owen
 
4. Practical aspects of managing radiation damage.
Tom Burnley, Zbyszek Otwinowski, Tatiana Petrova, Enrique Rudino-Pinera
 
5. Damage at new sources - XFEL
Henry Chapman, Lukas Lomb
 
6. Radiation damage in complementary fields
Dominique Bourgeois, Liz Duke, Richard Henderson, Raimond Ravelli, Eddie Snell
 
The cost of registration is £100 (This will rise to £120 after Monday February 20th 2012)
Registration is now closed
Abstract submission is now closed
 
Some Abstracts will be selected for oral presentation - please indicate if you would like to be considered for this in your uploaded document.
