22 May 2013 - 24 May 2013 - EMBL Advanced Training Centre, Heidelberg, Germany



Bookmark and Share


The program will include sessions that represent recent structural biology highlights, emerging methods and technologies and results of biomedical importance. Confirmed speakers are: So Iwata (Imperial College, Diamond), Dinshaw Patel (Sloan-Kettering Institute), Roger Sunahara (University of Michigan), David Eisenberg (UCLA), Philip Selenko (Leibniz Institut), Elena Conti (MPI Martinsried), Carol Robinson (University of Oxford), Stephan Sigrist (FU-Berlin) and Henry Chapman (European XFEL). A special session, jointly organised with the ESFRI project Euro-Bioimaging, will focus on the bridge between structural and cell biology provided by recent developments in electron, light and X-ray microscopy. Confirmed speakers for this session include Gerd Schneider and Wolfgang Baumeister. The position of Instruct in the wider context of integrated European infrastructures such as Elixir (bioinformatics) and Euro-Bioimaging will also be presented. Young scientists who want to know where structural biology is and where it is going are especially encouraged to attend.
