Structural Dynamics in Cellular Communication

Join VIB at it's first conference on ‘Structural dynamics in cellular communication’ that will take place in an architecturally significant venue in the heart of Europe (Brussels, Belgium) from 9-10 February, 2015.

The abstract deadline submission is extended for this is meeting till December 15th, 2014 and prices have been lowered by 20% for the early registrations.

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.
