~New Frontiers in Neutron Macromolecular Crystallography Workshop
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Spallation Neutron Source
July 16-18, 2014
This meeting will bring together scientists to discuss new opportunities for research at the two advanced neutron user facilities (SNS and HFIR) at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Users now have access to some of the world’s most intense neutron beamlines for studying the structure of biological systems using neutron macromolecular crystallography (NMC). 

The advent of the SNS and the construction of MaNDi provide a new and exciting opportunity for NMC to become a routine and essential structural tool for enzymology, structural biology and functional genomics. In order to satisfy the needs of the structural biology community, a dedicated, high-resolution time-of-flight single crystal macromolecular neutron diffractometer (MaNDi) has been constructed at the SNS and is now operational.

An important function of the meeting will be to introduce current and future MNC users to the new beamlines at ORNL and provide lectures on structure refinement using PHENIX and nCNS. New developments will be described that greatly enhance structure refinement.

Scholarships for attendance are available from:
• Joint Institute for Neutron Sciences for those attendees from EPSCOR states (Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands). For details, please visit http://jins.tennessee.edu/epscor/index.html for the application form and contact Hope Moore at hmoore2@utk.edu.
• The ORAU Travel Grants Program provides up to $800 to facilitate travel by a faculty member from an ORAU Sponsoring or Associate Institution or Branch Campus. Visits can be to collaborate with researchers at ORNL, Y-12, ORAU laboratories or work sites, or another ORAU institution. To apply, visit the ORAU Members Universities page, find your school, and contact your member councilor, who can submit a proposal for travel funding to the ORAU University Partnerships Office through the Members Only section of that site.
