Structural Dynamics in Cellular Communication (2nd edition)

After a successful first edition in February 2015, with a great audience and speakers such as Nobel Prize winner Ada Yonath, we are honored to announce a second edition.

This conference will feature current developments in protein science with plenary sessions focusing on:

  • macromolecular machines
  • in situ structural biology
  • structural engineering & drug discovery
  • protein function/dynamics

In addition to the scientific program, conference attendees will have ample networking opportunities during breaks, reception, conference dinner and guided walk in Brussels.

BECM Satellite Meeting
