Workshop “Upconversion Immunoassays for the Diagnosis of Bee Diseases”, September 12, 2019
CEITEC Masaryk University (CEITEC MU), Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry, Czech Academy of Science (IMC CAS), and Regensburg University (RU) organize jointly a workshop on the diagnosis of bee diseases. The workshop will start at 9:00 am at Masaryk University Campus Bohunice, building A35, room 211. The speakers include Zdeněk Farka, Zuzana Mikušová, Matěj Pastucha, and Petr Skládal from CEITEC MU, Daniel Horák and Uliana Kostiv from IMC CAS, Hans H. Gorris and Matthias J. Mickert from RU, and Antonín Hlaváček from the Institute of Analytical Chemistry, Czech Academy of Science. The workshop will focus on the application of photon-upconversion nanoparticles as sensitive labels in biomedical applications and immunoassays for diagnosis of bee diseases. The lectures will present recent advances in the fields of upconversion nanoparticle functionalization, single-molecule immunoanalysis, and will introduce the joint research project focused on the development of multiplexed assay for bacterial bee pathogens. In case of interest, please register by e-mail (email@example.com) before September 6, 2019.

What to do when your grant is rejected
Losing out on a grant hurts, but don’t lose heart — average success rates are around 20% among large funders, so grant rejection is common. Discover how to bounce back, find alternative funding and boost your chances of success next time.
Revolutionary cryo-EM is taking over structural biology
The number of protein structures being determined by cryo-electron microscopy is growing at an explosive rate. A report published by Nature on February 10, 2020 says that a revolutionary technique for determining the 3D shape of biomacromolecules is booming. Last week, a database that collects protein and other molecular structures determined by cryo-electron microscopy, or cryo-EM, acquired its 10,000th entry.
