Structural biology of membrane proteins, particularly from higher eukaryotes, has been transformed in the last two years. New and improved technologies such as electron microscopy and free electron lasers have led to the rapid increase in the number of structures solved and the complexity of these structures. This symposium will highlight advances in technology, celebrate the unprecedented advances in understanding of membrane protein structure and function, and look to the future for this rapidly developing field.
Frontiers in Integral Membrane Protein Structural Biology 2015 is set to take place in Oxford, United Kingdom from October 5th until the 7th.
MPSDC Chair Eduardo Perozo will participate with a lecture titled “Asymmetric Conformational Transition Underlies Mg2+-Driven Gating in CorA.”
Former MPSDC-sponsored Frontiers in Membrane Protein Structural Dynamics conference speakers Robert Stroud (who gave of the two 2014 keynote lectures) and Robert Tampé are also participating.
