4th Workshop of the Helmholtz Association “Cross Programme Activity Structural Biology”

Dear colleagues,

The 4th Workshop of the Helmholtz Association “Cross Programme Activity Structural Biology” will be held on November 20th and 21st 2017 in Düsseldorf.

The workshop will be hosted by the Forschungszentrum Jülich and the Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf  and brings together researchers from various Helmholtz Centers and Research Fields (DESY, DKFZ, DZNE, FZJ, HMGU, HZB, HZI, KIT, MDC) of the Helmholtz Association and collaborating institutions (CSSB, EMBL, FMP, TUM, Uni Düsseldorf) to present and exchange current structural biology research in understanding structural mechanisms in biology and biomedicine.

The workshop also hosts the thematic working group “Structure-Based Drug Discovery” of the Helmholtz Portfolio Programme “Wirkstoffforschung”.

The meeting will cover current topics of integrated structural biology in the Helmholtz Association focusing on structure and dynamics of biological macromolecules and their complexes, featuring new technologies and infrastructures, structural cell biology and structure-based drug discovery.

Please register by e-mail to cpa2017noSp@m@uni-duesseldorf.de and submit an abstract if you would like to contribute an oral talk or poster.

Organisation: Prof. Dieter Willbold, Dr. Ingrid Span, Dr. Manuel Etzkorn
