Roccalumera: ITN SNAL Summer School on biomaterials, cell membranes and lipid bilayers 2015

ITN SNAL Summer School on biomaterials, cell membranes and lipid bilayers is organized within the scope of training events of Initial Training Network SNAL funded by European Union through Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions. The summer school will be held at the Main Palace Hotel, a 4-star superior hotel in Taormina, Sicily from 24 July to 2 August 2015.

Web site of the school: http://school.itn-snal.net/

The general topic of the summer school is the interaction of synthetic polymers, nanoparticles, surfactants, proteins, small biomolecules with biological and model lipid membranes. Leading scientists and experts from biology, chemistry, physics, engineering and industry will participate in the school with lectures and seminars to give it a true multidisciplinary environment.

Summer school

The school is planned in form of lectures, practical exercises and discussion panels, where experts from different fields can share their knowledge interactively.

Broad aim is to train a new cohort of researchers with systemic thinking equipped with generic skills in combining experimental studies and computer simulations to prepare them for fruitful careers in academia and industry. The organization and planning of the school events is done with active participation of MSCA fellows recruited by SNAL network who design the structure of the scientific program and participate with lectures and seminars on a specific topic.
