Every other year, as part of our NIH sponsored Membrane Protein Structural Dynamics Consortium we gather in Chicago for a conference to discuss the most exciting aspects at the frontiers of membrane protein structure functional and dynamics. We (and the NIH) see this as gathering of the leaders in the field and a great opportunity to interface the advances of the Consortium with the community at large.
We are happy to announce the newest version of our very successful “Frontiers in Membrane Protein Structural Dynamics” meeting. It will take place on November 10-12 at the Advanced Photon Source Conference center at Argonne National Lab. We are still finalizing the program but it is expected to have a full slate of very exciting talks. The conference will begin on the evening of Friday, November 10th and end in the afternoon on Sunday, the 12th. There will be a total of 8 symposia sessions, and two keynote talks, bookending the meeting, plus an extensive poster session accompanied by a “flash session” where poster presenters will summarize their work in 1 slide/2 min micro talks.
As before, we hope to encourage attendance of graduate students and post-doctoral fellows by having a low non-speaker participant fee and offering travel awards to students, postdocs, and new faculty.
An on-line registration site will be available soon for this meeting at: http://memprotein.org/meeting
Looking very much forward to have you in the Chicago area in November!
With our best wishes (the organizing committee),
