This International School will focus on the fundamentals of crystallization from solution and its applications to the field of the crystallization of biological macromolecules.

ISBC2019 will provide five days of lectures and practical demonstrations related to the crystallization of biological macromolecules, biominerals and biomimetic materials, with one full day devoted to case studies on the crystallization of membrane proteins, viruses and large macromolecular complexes.

The School is intended for postgraduate and postdoctoral students as well as for research scientists from industrial and academic backgrounds that deal everyday with crystallization but seek fundamental knowledge on the behaviour of crystallizing solutions.

We invite students from all over the world to join us to learn from selected international experts, to hear case study presentations, to watch practical hand-on demonstrations, to participate in round-table discussions and to present their research results in the dedicated poster sessions. The language of the School will be English.

The School will be held from the 26th to the 31st of May 2019 at the Gran Hotel Luna de Granada in Granada (Spain).
