Structural dynamics in cellular communication

Monday, 9 February, 2015 - 09:15 to Tuesday, 10 February, 2015 - 16:00
Kunstberg, 1000 Brussels, Belgium


The Flemish Institute for Biotechnology (VIB) is organising a conference about 'Structural Structural dynamics in cellular communication’. The conference takes place on 9 and 10 February 2015 in Square Brussels, an architecturally significant venue in the heart of Europe. 

The conference will cover the latest advances in protein science, focusing on systems structural biology, the functional role of structural dynamics, the organization of complexes and key technological advances. During four plenary sessions this first edition will handle the following topics:  macromolecular machines and assemblages; protein network dynamics; protein fluctuations and function; and membrane proteins and complexes.

Top speakers are Ada Yonath (Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel), Lewis Kay (University of Toronto, Canada), Sheena Radford (University of Leeds, UK), Brian T. Chait (Rockefeller University, US), Susan Buchanan (National Institutes of Health, US) and Thomas Marlovits (Center for Structural Systems Biology, Hamburg, Germany)

For a one to one meeting with some of the experts in the field, sign up for the walking dinner at the Rocco Forte Hotel Amigo. This dinner offers the unique possibility to network in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Sign up during your registration.
