It is our pleasure to invite you to the “Neutrons for membrane biophysics” school that will take place in Garching (close to Munich) between the 15th and 19th of July. The event will focus on the use of neutrons and molecular deuteration to enable early career researchers to provide fresh insight into problems in membrane biophysics. The workshop’s aims are to give: a practical background in the design of experiments (including utilisation of molecular deuteration); preparation of samples; successful execution of a measurement program (with hands on experiments at two instruments of the FRM II reactor); and the analysis of data. We will introduce software packages suitable for the analysis of data as well as explore the exciting possibilities of directly comparing molecular dynamics simulations with neutron scattering data. The target audience is early career researchers, mainly PhD students and postdoctoral fellows, working with biophysical problems involving model membranes.

Lectures will cover the following areas:

- Small angle neutron scattering (SANS)
- Neutron reflectometry
- Grazing incidence small angle neutron scattering (GISANS)
- Membrane lamellar diffraction
- Molecular deuteration
- Molecular dynamics

List of lecturers:

- Dr. Anna Leung (ESS)
