B23 Roadshow Series - Membrane Protein and Carbohydrate Research Workshop

Diamond Light Source (DLS), together with the University of Leeds and University of Liverpool held a one-day workshop dedicated to membrane protein and carbohydrate research, with a particular view to promote the synchrotron based CD beamline B23 for these biological materials.

On the 31th May 2013, Diamond Light Source (DLS), together with the University of Leeds and University of Liverpool held a one-day workshop dedicated to membrane protein and carbohydrate research, with a particular view to promote the synchrotron based CD beamline B23 for these biological materials.

The event was held at The Metropole Hotel , Leeds, a convenient location well accessible using public transport. The event was free to attend, and refreshments and lunch were provided thanks to very generous support from DLS.

The day included scientific lectures about membrane proteins and carbohydrates, use of CD/SRCD spectroscopy in selected applications and other biophysical techniques, and an introduction to the B23 station from the beamline scientists. Discussion on the advantages of B23 over bench-top instruments, specific experimental setup, possibilities and limitations, and to the procedure of beamtime application and peer reviewed beamtime proposal process were covered in an interactive manner for the benefits of registrants who are not familiar with the process. B23 is – like all other beamline stations at DLS – accessible to UK academics through the online proposal submission system, and the visits are fully supported by DLS.

This was the second event in a series of Road shows to highlight Diamond Light Source B23 throughout the country. If you are interested in participating in future events please email Rohanah Hussain.
