Course directors
Oxana Klementieva, oxana.klementieva@med.lu.se and Kajsa M Paulsson, kajsa_m.paulsson@med.lu.se

Description and purpose of the course
This course is an experimental part of cross-disciplinary course “MAX IV/ESS-based imaging for medical and biomedical research”. The main purpose of the course is to educate graduate students on the utilization of major neutron facilities. Lectures, presented by researchers from academia and neutron facilities, will include basic tutorials on the principles of scattering theory and the characteristics of the sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods to a medical and biomedical research.

Period
Three days of full-time study during the week 23, 2019.  and two days during the week 24, 2019. This course will be held in English. 

Credit
1,5 credits

Number of places
9-12

Learning outcomes
On completion of the course, participants shall deepen the understanding of how to design an experiment at a neutron source facility.

Course content
The course is structured around a number of course meetings, containing lectures seminars and remote imaging experiment at a neutron source facility (ISIS, UK).

The course contains:

  • Introductory session to neutron facilities
  • Examples of biomedical experiments at neutron facilities
  • Session of sample preparation tips, tricks and experimental planning
  • remote experiment at a neutron facility
  • Session of data analysis

Assessment
Attendance and active participation in all parts of the course is required, as well as an individual course assignment.

Grades
The grades awarded are Pass or Fail. 

Admission requirements
Admission to PhD studies and completion one of the courses “MAX IV/ESS-based imaging for medical and biomedical research, introduction” or “MAX IV/ESS-based imaging for medical and biomedical research, experimental set up”.
