We are very pleased to announce the 10th jointly organised Diamond-CCP4 Data Collection and Structure Solution Workshop on practical macromolecular crystallography.

When is it?

The main part of the course will take place across two weeks, ensuring a wide programme is covered and enough breaks and networking opportunities are provided. Students are expected to attend the full workshop including the two preparation days as follows:

  • "Before fishing crystals" day - Monday 6th November 2023 - online, via Zoom
  • "Before data collection" day - Tuesday 21st November 2023 - online, via Zoom 
  • Main workshop - Monday 27th November to Tuesday 5th December 2023 - in person at Diamond Light Source, with a free day on 2nd December


What's the format?

The workshop will consist of presentations and tutorials delivered by experts in the field, plus one day of data collection time at Diamond's excellent MX beamlines. Students will be able to work alongside experts on their own projects, tackling all aspects of structure solution, from data collection through to phasing, refinement and validation.

Who can apply?

The course is intended mainly for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and early career scientists in the area of structural biology. Some experience of crystallography and data collection is expected, and applications from students who can bring an interesting project with them (crystals and possibly previously collected datasets) will be favoured.


There is no fee to attend this online workshop, however attendance will be subject to an application process and supervisors will be asked to submit a letter of support to back up the application.


Application will be open until 17:00 (BST) on Monday 9th October 2023.
