During the past years, meetings have not changed significantly even though science has. Most of us use a broad array of biophysical techniques that are not well coverd at typical ‘single technique’ conference. This does not help us to grow or expand our horizons.
'Sailing the Protein Seas in the Ocean State' will discuss projects that require the integration of multiple structural, biophysical and cellular techniques to fully elucidate the molecular mechanisms that underlie biological function. This includes also dynamic aspects of protein function.
This will be a small meeting, allowing for effective communication and discussion of research and possibilities. While the meeting is anchored by a few prominant, outstanind investigators that have agreed to attend and give a keynote most speakers will be chosen from the attendees, with a particular emphasis on providing speaker opportunities to early-career participants (assistant professors, postdocs and students). There will also be a poster session.
Thank you for your interest in see you in 2016!
