X-ray and neutron imaging provide opportunities to ‘see’ into generally opaque soil systems and have great potential to address important research questions in soil and, more generally, environmental sciences. Major challenges for humanity, such as climate change (CO2 storage) or food and water scarcity, could be tackled as a result.
Using neutrons in Archaeology, Geology and Cultural Heritage Studies: Neutron Imaging, Prompt Gamma Activation Analysis and Gamma Scan. Registration DEADLINE - June 1st
Lund Institute for advanced Neutron and X-Ray Science (LINXS) is planning a series of “tryout workshops”. The main idea is to give the opportunity to scientists in geology, archaeology and cultural heritage studies to bring their own samples and test different methods, types of radiation and instruments, before a full beam time proposal is written. Also, this would give scholars from different fields a possibility to meet, discuss and learn more about techniques soon available in Lund.
The RACIRI Summer School is a joint initiative by Russia, Sweden and Germany in the collaborative framework of the Röntgen-Angström-Cluster (RAC) and the Ioffe-Röntgen-Institute (IRI). The novel format of the RACIRI Summer School is driven by scientific frontier themes and challenges in the field of materials sciences with a strong connection to the superb analytical potential at current and future research infrastructures (synchrotron radiation, X-rays and neutrons) in the Baltic region. The RACIRI Summer School is held every year under a special focus theme. Its venue rotates annually among the three partnering countries.

Richard Neutze took his PhD in Physics in 1995 from the University of Canterbury (New Zealand). He was introduced to molecular biophysics at Oxford University (England); completed a postdoc at Tübingen University (Germany); and then moved to Uppsala University (Sweden). In 1998 Neutze became Assistant Professor at Uppsala University and he moved his group to Chalmers University of Technology in 2000. In 2006 Neutze was appointed Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Gothenburg. He has worked on the structural biology of aquaporins; bacterial rhodopsins; photosynthetic reaction centres; and time-resolved diffraction and time-resolved wide angle X-ray scattering studies of membrane proteins, using both synchrotron radiation and X-ray free electron lasers.
Create an overview of activities in the region related to phase retrieval and tomographic reconstruction. Enable collaboration and highlight possible new projects and discuss the possibility of their realisation / funding. The participants (15-30) will be mathematicians, physicists and computing scientists. Existing tools (software packages) will be demonstrated in a form of short hands-on sessions.
Now is the time to create the user community in the food sector that can shape the facilities in terms of access, sample environments and instruments. Together we will discuss how the unique techniques available can contribute to the ongoing and future research in food science and technology.
This one day workshop has for aim to establish communication between the users of high resolution X-ray imaging in their scientific work. The focus is on imaging biological tissue including in vivo studies. We will address the needs of such a community in Sweden. The outcome of this workshop will also be a document describing the activities of a new LINXS working group ‘Tomography of Biological Tissue’
Physical Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Lund University and LINXS (Lund Institute of Advanced Neutron and X-ray Studies) have the pleasure to invite you to this mini-symposium, entitled ”Lipid self-assembly - structure, function and applications”.

Title: Calcium binding to L-plastin regulates actin bundling: a target for new anti-metastasis drugs?
Abstract: The plastin proteins, also known as fimbrins, are found in all eukaryotic organisms, where they are involved in actin-bundling. They have a unique multidomain structure made up of four CH domains and two EF-hand calcium binding motifs. The four CH domains are directly involved in the bundling of F-actin, while binding of calcium to the EF-hand headpiece of the protein can inhibit this process. Using NMR spectroscopy and various biophysical methods, we have studied the calcium-binding headpiece domains of L-plastin and various other plastics/fimbrins. Our results reveal an unexpected activation mechanism, involving a flexible region in the apo-protein. L-plastin is normally only expressed in white blood cells, but it also is highly expressed in metastatic cancer cells, making this protein a potential target for the development of new anticancer drugs.
