Diamond B23 circular dichroism beamline Workshop Series / University of Leeds / University of Liverpool
B23 Roadshow Series - Membrane Protein and Carbohydrate Research Workshop
Friday 31 May 2013, The Metropole Hotel, Leeds
Diamond Light Source – University of Leeds, University of Liverpool
On the 31th May 2013, Diamond Light Source (DLS), together with the University of Leeds and University of Liverpool will hold 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 will be held at The Metropole Hotel , Leeds, a convenient location well accessible using public transport. The event is free to attend, and refreshments and lunch will be provided thanks to very generous support from DLS.
The day will include 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 will be 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 will be the second event in a series of Road shows to highlight Diamond Light Source B23 throughout the country. The next event is scheduled to take place in Liverpool on the 1st November 2013 on Material Science. If you are interested in participating in future events please email Rohanah Hussain.
