UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT - PARTNERSHIP FOR EXCELLENCE IN STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY PRESENTS
The 11th Annual North Eastern Structure Symposium
Structural Biology of Inflammation
Friday, 17th October 2014
UConn Health, Farmington, CT
We are pleased to announce the 2014 North East Structure Symposium (NESS). This annual symposium series during the New England 'Fall Foliage Season' is intended as a venue to share expertise on new methodologies and developments in structural biology. We anticipate that the meeting will offer an opportunity for students and senior investigators to foster new interactions and collaborations.
Each year's symposium covers a defined topic. This year, the meeting will be focused on "Structural Biology of Inflammation". Our colleagues Dennis Wright (Pharmacy) and Sandra Weller (Molecular Biology and Biophysics) are organizing a companion afternoon meeting the day before NESS on "Drug Discovery and Inflammation". The past decade has brought about cutting-edge experimental techniques that provide atomic resolution view of biomolecular processes such as protein folding, enzymatic catalysis, allosteric transition and binding. The latest developments on the frontiers of the field will be covered in lectures by distinguished invited speakers. The symposium will also feature a poster-session for students and post-doctoral fellows with prizes awarded for the best posters. Please share information about NESS with colleagues that might be interested in this event.
