Some forthcoming meetings
Celebrating Rosalind Franklin's 100-year Birthday: New Structures, New Challenges
The Biological Structures Group Winter meeting will be held on Friday 18th December in a virtual format. Please register here.
Our Winter meeting celebrates Rosalind Franklin’s 100th Birthday with a line-up of world-leading international speakers presenting some of the newest and exciting achievements in structural biology, including a substantial number of presentations related to SARS-CoV-2. We are also delighted that Professor Matthew Cobb from the University of Manchester will open our meeting with a historical account of the life and times of Rosalind Franklin. In addition to organising meetings, a key role of the BCA Biologicals Structures Group is to promote the development of structural biology, particularly through supporting workshops, training and other events aimed at students and early career researchers. We receive many requests for support and profits from this meeting will be used to support as many of those events as we are able. Please note that we have tried to keep registration costs low. However, if you are a student and/or young researcher and are in need to support to attend this meeting then please contact our secretary Dr. Mark Roe ([email protected]) to discuss your circumstances.
