MPSDC at the 56th Annual Biophysical Society Meeting

The 56th Annual Biophysical Society Meeting is fast approaching, and this year members of the Membrane Protein Structural Dynamics Consortium (MPSDC) have collaborated on no less than 72 presentations and posters taking place in various subgroups, platforms, symposia, mini-symposia, and workshops.

Additionally, Klaus Schulten will be honored at the Meeting’s Awards Ceremony as a 2012 Society Fellow during the Biophysical Society’s on Monday February 27, 2012 for his groundbreaking effort to develop computational molecular biology as an important tool to solve problems in biophysics. Francisco Bezanilla was voted President-Elect during the 2011 Society meetings and will begin officially holding this office at the Meeting. His term as President will begin at the 2013 Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Finally, Merritt Maduke will begin her three-year term as a Councilor of the Biophysical Society as well.

The table after the jump provides a complete itinerary of all Consortium-affiliated presentations and posters. We would like to feature especially those 12 in which two or more Consortium members or associate members have collaborated (highlighted in light blue). The table is ordered by date and time.

The Membrane Protein Structural Dynamics Consortium (MPSDC) will be holding its first Membrane Protein Structural Dynamics Symposium on Thursday, May 3rd and Friday, May 4th. This Symposium will feature both scientific sessions and workshops, and we expect the sessions to include not only Consortium members but also additional external invitees. Attendance is open to the public and will take place within the context of our 3rd Annual MPSDC Meeting, where all members, NIH representatives and our External Advisory Committee will participate.

This year the meeting will be held in downtown Chicago at the University of Chicago’s Gleacher Center located at 450 North Cityfront Plaza Drive, Chicago IL 60611.

This is a wonderful and centrally located venue that we think will enhance our interactions and allow for easy transportation to and from the meeting.

Overall, we envision the event to consist of two sections. First, the Symposium will occupy all of Thursday, May 3 and the morning of Friday, May 4. Our Consortium meeting will then follow Friday afternoon and is intended only for Consortium members, our NIH liaison and the External Advisory Committee.
