Event Name

Understanding Complex Macromolecular Systems from Sparse Data: The Astbury Conversation

Start Date 11th Apr 2016
End Date 12th Apr 2016

The symposium runs from 2pm on Monday 11 until 3pm on Tuesday 12th April 2016.

 In April 2016 researchers, at all career stages, from across the globe will meet together to discuss recent innovations in the field of structural molecular biology.

This unique event being held at The University of Leeds, UK, has already attracted leading figures in this field including Professor Michael Levitt, FRS who was awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for developing computational tools to dissect chemical reactions.

Other confirmed speakers:

  • David Barford FRS (LMB, Cambridge)
  • Martin Blackledge (IBS, Grenoble)
  • Tim Clausen (IMP, Vienna)
  • Sarah Harris (Astbury Centre, Leeds)
  • Lewis E. Kay FRS (Toronto)
  • Sheena Radford FRS, (Astbury Centre, Leeds)
  • Helen Saibil FRS (Birkbeck)
  • David Stuart FRS (Oxford)

Additional talks will be selected from abstracts submitted online, along with poster sessions. The symposium will be followed by a public engagement event and a public lecture by Professor Michael Levitt.
