Structural Dynamics in Cellular Communication
Add to calendar

Join VIB at its 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 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.

For a one to one meeting with some of the experts in the field, sign up for our walking dinner at the Rocco Forte Hotel Amigo. This dinner offers the unique possibility to network in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Sign up during your registration.
