You will experience the stimulating and 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. You will be introduced to advanced methods in structural biology, molecular cell biology, chemical biology and biophysics to study protein machines at atomic resolution. The interdisciplinary range of methods includes cryo-electron microscopy, NMR, mass spectrometry and proteomics, crystallography, fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy.

Learn how regenerative medicine (RM) may hold the potential to bring (human and animal) therapies from the lab into the clinic. The convergence of science, technology and medicine in Utrecht is highlighted in this week-long course. This programme is comprised of meeting experts, patients, hands-on bench work, and demonstrations. It allows for a high amount of interaction among lecturers, keynote speakers and fellow participants.
