Coronavirus information for participants

The onsite course and conference programme at EMBL has been paused until the end of June 2020.


We aim to continue offering our advanced training for the scientific community however we safely can. While some events have been cancelled, many have been rescheduled for a later date and others will be delivered as virtual events.


Registration is open for onsite courses and conferences starting after 1 July and for the virtual events. All registration fees for any events which don’t take place due to the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.


More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.

Topics

  • X-ray crystallography
  • Electron microscopy
  • Modelling, bridging scales to systems biology
  • Structural biology in health and disease
  • Radiation - photons, neutrons and electrons

Why attend?

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.

Aims

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.
