Membrane Proteins: Structure and Mechanism
joint with Frontiers of NMR in Molecular Biology VIII
Organizer(s): Joseph J. Falke and Douglas C. Rees
Date: February 04 - 10, 2003
Location: Taos Convention Center (meeting only), Taos, NM, USA
Sponsored in part by The Director's Sponsor Fund
Summary of Meeting:
The conference will feature presentations by established investigators and rising young stars in the rapidly expanding field of membrane proteins. Up to 30% of the human genome may encode transmembrane proteins and these proteins are the targets of most pharmaceuticals, yet progress toward a molecular understanding of membrane proteins has been slow until recent years. Now, however, sophisticated physical, chemical and biochemical methods are beginning to yield a structural and mechanistic view of the major functional subclasses, including transmembrane channels, receptors, transporters, and peripheral membrane proteins. The meeting is unique, since no other conference of this size brings together leading researchers focusing on all the major classes of membrane proteins to compare their latest findings and disseminate their newest experimental approaches.
Discounted Abstract Deadline: October 3 2002
