Integrative Structural Biology

LINXS Workshop November 19th-21st in Lund

Join us in Lund for a lunch-to-lunch workshop from Monday (Nov 19th) to Wednesday (Nov 21st), noon to noon.

Development in the area of structural biology methods combined with new computational possibilities has highlighted the importance of combining different methods in order to maximize the output.  

With the rapid progress and improvements in the fields of macromolecular crystallography, Cryo-EM, small angle scattering, electron diffraction and use of XFELs, the new LINXS theme INTEGRATIVE STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY is formed to advance cutting-edge research and to encourage new users to utilize integrative structure biology to address key scientific questions.

Workshop Description

The first symposium, which is the kick-off event for the new LINXS theme, will focus on advanced, cutting-edge research in the fields of macromolecular crystallography, Cryo-EM, small angle scattering, electron diffraction, mass-spectroscopy, NMR, and use of XFELs etc. The target group is primarily from academia but also from several large-scale facilities (MAX IV, ESS, etc) and industry. The program is centered around invited internationally leading keynote speakers, that will be mixed with shorter invited talks, TechTalks, as well as with presentations by PhD students and young researchers, and will be an excellent platform for national and international networking. Both experienced specialists and researchers with more recently established interests in integrative structural biology are expected to greatly benefit from the symposium.

Location:   Elite Ideon Gateway, Lund
Content:    Invited talks, TechTalks explaining the Methods, Discussion, Clip-session, Posters
Cost:          Free of charge including dinner
