Frontiers of Structural Biology
joint with G Protein-Coupled Receptors: Structural Dynamics and Functional Implications
Organizer(s): Andrew B. Ward and Wayne A. HendricksonDate: March 30 - April 04, 2014
Location: Snowbird Resort, Snowbird, UT, USA
Direct observation of biological phenomena on a structural level provides a basis for understanding and manipulating molecular interactions within a cell and enabling endeavors such as structure-based drug design. The field of structural biology now operates on a scale from atoms to cells, and the most exciting research is being conducted at the interface of different technologies. Thus, it is important that practitioners of the various structural biology techniques come together and discuss a more holistic view of the field. The goal of this meeting is to connect leaders in the structural biology field, with particular emphasis on novel methods/technology development, highlights of complex cell biological insights made by pioneering structural efforts (across multiple biophysical disciplines) and contributions made by large-scale, high-throughput efforts. Additionally, because of the large amount of structural information that is becoming available (and will continue to do so), the meting highlights innovations made in areas of bioinformatics and modeling/design that have begun to harness the increasing structural information. Because this meeting brings together a diverse group of structural biologists who employ a variety of experimental techniques, the meeting should suppor the dissemination of cutting-edge advances and promote interaction among the vibrant international structural biology community.
