Dear colleagues,

registration and abstract submission is open to the upcoming MLZ conference "Neutrons for Health" which will be held on June 27-30, 2017 in Bad Reichenhall, Germany.

Deadline for abstract submission is March 31, 2017.


The conference will cover major topics of neutron scattering and neutron radiation for health ranging from treatment of amyloid diseases, protein folding, details of enzyme behaviour, understanding of cell-membrane interactions, identification of new drug targets, 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. In addition methodological instrument developments are an important contribution to enhance medical and health research with neutrons.

The conference targets scientists and health professionals to discuss current status and perspectives of neutron scattering, spectroscopy and irradiation in life sciences and medical treatments. Invited speakers include
