[ccp4bb] Announcement of 10th International Workshop on Radiation Damage to Biological Samples. Brookhaven National Laboratory, 13-14th September 2018

Registration is now open for the 10th International Workshop on Radiation Damage to Biological Samples will be held at BNL, USA 13th-14th September 2018.

Further details can be found at:



The Workshop will address essential questions and challenges of radiation damage to biological samples during their examination with ionizing radiation. The workshop will cover various X-ray and electron scattering techniques, from crystallography to imaging, and offers ample opportunities for information exchange and discussion among researchers from around the globe.

Sessions will cover:

1) Basic Understanding of Radiation Damage Mechanisms

2) Biological Studies Affected by Radiation Damage

3) Practical Aspects of Reducing Radiation Damage at Synchrotrons

4) Damage at New Sources - XFEL and 4th generation synchrotrons

5) Radiation Damage in Complementary Fields including Biological Imaging
