BioStruct-X Industry Workshop

Hamburg, Germany, 15th - 17th June 2015

Synchrotron radiation facilities for biomedical research such as structural biology beamline facilities, and protein preparation and characterization platforms represent core technologies used in many pharmaceutical and biotech companies. Effective and efficient access to key synchrotron radiation technologies can have a big impact on research efforts and can increase competitiveness at a national and international level. A clear understanding of the challenges faced and the needs of both service providers and clients is however crucial to make the most of this working relationship.

To aid and encourage the exchange of knowledge, needs and approaches between industrial partners and the representatives from the BioStruct-X transnational access facilities, joint research activities and the BioStruct-X user community, a three day workshop will be held on June 15-17, 2015 at DESY, Hamburg.

The workshop is aimed at:

- representatives of pharmaceutical companies and service providers for structural biology keen to meet new cooperation partners
- scientists engaged in biomedical research interested in learning more about opportunities and possibilities at synchrotron facilities
- developers and distributors of X-ray and analytical equipment

The programme includes:

- presentations by the BioStruct-X partners and other service providers detailing the facilities and technologies open to access for industrial users,
- talks highlighting examples of research done using synchrotron radiation,
- a round table discussion on the future needs for synchrotron beamtime provision to the pharmaceutical industry,
- ample time for networking and discussions with a poster session, a delegate exhibition and tour of the local facilities at world’s brightest synchrotron source, PETRA III.

The number of participants of the workshop will be limited to 130 on a 'first come first serve' basis.

Early bird registration (before March 31st) is 100 Euro – afterwards 200 Euro.
