Every summer, Bijvoet School organizes, together with the Utrecht Summer School a summerschool called "Exploring Nature's Molecular Machines".

You will experience the stimulating, international environment in our research laboratories and grasp first hand the meaning of interdisciplinary science. We will focus on the chemical principles underlying protein structure and function. We will examine how proteins fold into complex “molecular machines”, and how malfunction of individual proteins leads to failure and disease. We will combine lectures with experiments in research laboratories. You will be introduced to advanced methods in structural biology, molecular cell biology and biophysics to study protein machines at atomic resolution. The interdisciplinary range of methods includes NMR, mass spectrometry and proteomics, crystallography, fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy.

Deadline for registration: April 26, 2017
