The role of metals in biological systems is a very complex multidisciplinary subject. Europe has been at the forefront of the research effort on the role of metals in biological systems, and the development of Biological Inorganic Chemistry, as this subject is now termed. In order to ensure that Europe maintains its prime position in this important area, not only with its scientific implications, but also with its enormous social impacts, there is a dire need to train young scientists at this interface between physics, chemistry, biology, medicine and environmental sciences.

In the wake of a long and distinguished series of courses that span more than twenty years, the 2019 edition will gather leading and emerging European experts, some of whom are students in previous runs of the course held in the 90's. The confined location with the faculty and students lodged in the same hotel where the sessions are taking place is designed to facilitate their interaction. This will also encourage what we feel is one of the primary objectives of this course, which is to build a sense of community among the participants setting the bases for lifelong professional contacts across traditional scientific disciplines.



The target audience of the summer school is PhD students who are not in their first year of studies, and post-docs within three years of obtaining their PhD. To apply please send your CV including country of origin, country of work, gender, presentations at scientific meetings and list of publications as a PDF document to the following e-mail address, before 31st of January:

The registration fee is 450 euros. It includes the participation in all the sessions, coffee breaks, accommodation, breakfast and dinner between the 12th and 18th of May.

If you  are a member of a laboratory affiliated with the TIMB3 Consortium you are eligible for support that will cover your registration and expenses. If you wish to apply for this support please submit a letter addressed to the course organizers indicating your current affiliation and outlining how your current research interests match the mission of the TIMB3 project, together with your application.
