EMBL Courses and Conferences during the Coronavirus pandemic
With the onsite programme paused, many of our events are now being offered in virtual formats.
Registration is open as usual for many events, with back-up plans in place to move further courses and conferences online as necessary. Registration fees for any events affected by the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.
More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.
- X-ray crystallography
- Electron microscopy
- Modelling, bridging scales to systems biology
- Structural biology in health and disease
- Radiation - photons, neutrons and electrons
Sir John Kendrew was both a pioneering structural biologist and the founder of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). Accordingly, structural biology research and the development of structural biology technologies and infrastructures have always been major focus areas at EMBL. This EMBL conference will celebrate Sir John Kendrew's legacy and the dramatic changes structural biology has undergone since he obtained the Nobel Prize for the X-ray structure determination of myoglobin in 1962.
Leaders of their fields will present their perspective on how revolutionary developments in structural biology techniques, notably X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy and computational modeling, have maintained structural biology at the forefront of biology, providing mechanistic understanding of fundamental biological processes as well as numerous applications to improve human health.
Who should attend?
The meeting is open for anybody who is interested how methodological developments in structural biology have dramatically advanced the field. The meeting is of interest for the broad structural biology community. In addition, we particularly encourage EMBL alumni to celebrate with us the legacy of Sir John Kendrew at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre in Heidelberg.
