Welcome Educators

Brookhaven National Laboratory is hosting a teacher training, Exploring Proteins with a New Light, from June 26–30, 2017. The training is centered on the applications in diffraction and protein crystallography and the development of student research projects at the National Synchrotron Light Source-II (NSLS-II). Selected participants will pay a fee of $260 US for teachers and $60 US for students, which includes daily lunch and refreshments. Upon completion of the week-long training, participants will receive 40 in-service credit hours.

Agenda Overview

Lecture topics include cell structure, macromolecules, crystals, principles of synchrotron radiation, crystallography and imaging techniques, data analysis, and developing a proposal for research at the NSLS II. Participants will gain firsthand knowledge through hands-on laboratory activities in sample preparation, protein crystallization, imaging, data collection, and data analysis.
