now open to attend the Dynamic
Structural Biology Workshop, which 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
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
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. For more event
