Dear colleagues,

we like to inform you about the upcoming MLZ Conference - Neutrons for Health which will happen June 27-30, 2017 in Bad Reichenhall, Germany.

Registration to the conference is now open and abstracts can be submitted till March 31, 2017


The goal of health research is to improve medical care and quality of life for the population. In the future individually tailored options for prevention and treatment will play a vital role, but it will also be important to better understand the role of metabolic syndromes for the major common diseases. Understanding complex biological processes requires the use of the full scientific and analytical methods available. Particularly strong are methods that offer insight into the structure and the dynamics at the molecular scale of the processes involved. The application of neutron scattering and neutron radiation to health andlifesciences is often lesser known but neutrons target very specific problems and reveal unique information.

The international conference “Neutrons for Health” targets scientists from all these areas of health and medicine. It will emphasize the use of neutron scattering, spectroscopy and irradiation as analytical tools for the characterization and understanding of biological systems and development and applications in medical treatments.
Major topics of neutron scattering and neutron radiation for health will be covered ranging from diagnosis and treatment of amyloid diseases, investigating protein folding, details of enzyme behaviour, understanding of cell-membrane interactions, identification of new drug targets and development of advanced drug-delivery systems, antibiotic resistance, treatment of genetic diseases, implants and biocompatible materials,  tissue regeneration, cancer diagnosis and therapy, radiopharmaceuticals as well as medical applications and treatments.

We hope you will appreciate this effort and join the conference to discuss this important field in neutron science.

With best regards
Thomas Gutberlet
