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.
EMBL is committed to sharing research advances and sustaining scientific interaction throughout the coronavirus pandemic. We are delighted to announce that the conference is going virtual and invite you to join us online. The virtual conference includes live-streamed talks from invited speakers with live Q&A sessions after each talk as well as meet the speaker sessions, digital poster sessions with recorded flash talks and networking opportunities.
There is an increasing awareness that mechanistic structural information on molecular machines is ideally generated within the context of intact cells in order to fully grasp how they function in a complex native environment. Recent technological advances have nurtured the development of such in situ structural biology approaches in several disciplines, including cryo-EM, mass spectrometry, super-resolution microscopy, NMR, computational modelling and others.
This conference will bring together experts and early stage researchers from the separate fields
- to provide a platform for structural biology within the cellular context
- to stimulate discussions about how to meaningfully integrate data from different methods
- to define what types of biological questions can already be addressed using in situ structural biology and which might be approached in the future
- Imaging across scales
- Structural analysis in situ
- Molecular sociology
- Biophysical analysis in cells
- Integrative modelling
