Training Scientists of the Future

One of the goals of the Macromolecular Crystallography (MC) group is to actively train and educate the next generation of scientists through Workshops, Summer Schools, Conference Lectures, Internship Programs and one-on-one mentoring at the beamline stations.  Training typically consists of lectures, hands-on experiments, data analysis and interpretation of results. Novice and experienced users are trained in the optimal use of the X-ray beamlines, particularly when new instrumentation and/or new emerging methodologies are first implemented.  Each year, the MC group hosts multiple local and remote workshops, provides more than 30 conference lectures, and mentors a large group of summer interns.
