Dynamic Structural Biology Workshop - November 5th 2019
16 Oct 2019







​The Dynamic Structural Biology Workshop aims to capture input from the life sciences community as part of the overall science case for a potential UK X-ray free-electron laser (XFEL). ​

Date: Tuesday 5th November 2019, 09:00-19:00
Venue: The Francis Crick Institute, 1 Midland Road, London, NW1 1A7

The day will be structured into four sessions and attendees will hear from expert speakers in a number of respective talks, which include:

  • Understanding the challenges in structural biology, with Professor Dave Stuart, Diamond Light Source/University of Oxford and Professor Christopher J Schofield, University of Oxford
  • X-ray applications in dynamic structural biology, with Professor Henrike Müller-Werkmeister, University of Potsdam and Dr Aina Cohen, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
  • Emerging methods in studying protein dynamics, with Dr Chris Russo, University of Cambridge and Dr Adrian Mancuso, European XFEL
  • Outlook and horizon view, with Professor James Naismith, Rosalind Franklin Institute/University of Oxford

The workshop will provide a platform for all life scientists to discuss the frontiers in structural biology, using various methods that include X-ray-based methods from synchrotrons and XFELs, as well as cryo-electron microscopy and NMR. The day will finish with a drinks reception to allow for further networking opportunities.

Thanks to support from the Wellcome Trust, BBSRC/UKRI, the Rosalind Franklin Institute and Diamond, the workshop is free of charge to attend but places are limited and will be confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis.
