Prior to Bioiron 2019, IBIS has organized the 1st International laboratory course dedicated to analytical methods for assessing iron in living entities in physiological and pathological states.

Directors: Dorine Swinkels(NL) and Ioav Cabantchik (IL)
Website: embl.de
Venue: ATC premises of EMBL Heidelberg, Germany prior to the EMBL-8th Bioiron International conference May 5 – 10, 2018

The workshop is designed to expose the various experimental tools used for:

  1. tracing iron dynamics in biological systems, from solution to cells to organs, with major emphasis on fluorescence techniques available in most laboratories
  2. assessing iron status in humans in health and disease and
  3. exploring methods to study iron sulphur cluster (ISC) proteins (ISP).

The 3-day workshop is planned for up to 18 students. Morning sessions comprise lectures and experimental planning and afternoon-evening data analysis and discussions. Bursaries covering the course registration fees are available for selected 10 applicants.
