Edition 2012

The School Francesco Paolo Ricci is an international school, established in 1994, providing a comprehensive training in the fundamental concepts of neutron scattering. The XI edition, “Neutron Investigation of Biosystems”, will be dedicated to training students in neutron spectroscopy techniques applied to the investigation of the structural, dynamical and functional properties of biosystems and to their biotechnological applications.

School Objectives: Educate graduate students on the utilization of major neutron facilities, in neutron scattering techniques, instrumentation and data collection, analysis and interpretation. Expose participants to cutting-edge research in biosystems. Build interactions between graduate students, their research centres and university groups, Lectures will include basic and simulation tutorials on the principles of scattering theory and the characteristics of the sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods.

Target Audience: Students attending universities majoring in physics, chemistry, materials science, or related fields.

Scientific Directors XI Edition: C. Andreani, S. Magazù
