We are organizing the Bioscope Winter Courses in January-February 2016, in Caparica (Lisbon, Portugal), as follows:

January 25th-27th 2016
V Hands-on course in nanoparticles studies: from fluorescence and biochemical tools to MALDI-MS techniques applied to coated metal nanoparticles

January 27th-29th 2016
III Hands-on course in sample preparation using nanoparticles for proteomics

February 1st-3rd 2016
VI Hands-on course in ultrafast sample treatment for proteomics

February 4th-5th 2015
II Hands on course in 18O-based protein quantification for proteomics

The courses costs only about 350-450 euros (each) and you may find the topics at the end of this email.
There are grants and reduced prices for groups.

We have managed a hotel (4 star) with direct tramp communication with the venue by just 50 euros/night.
