Biological Structures Group Winter Meeting 2016: "Seeing the Wood for the Trees in Structural Biology."
The meeting will be held on Monday 19th Dec 2016 at Birkbeck College, London at 11.00 am.
The aim of the meeting is to glimpse at some of the contemporary approaches for assembling individual molecular structures into a bigger picture of biological systems, be they structural, metabolic, functional, disease-related or such-like. The meeting doubles as a career celebration event for the many ex-students, colleagues and collaborators of Prof Steve Wood whose research in Sussex, Birkbeck, Southampton and more recently UCL spans at least some 5 decades.
Prof Tom Blundell FRS, Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge. "Increasing complexity to obtain selectivity in cell regulation: structural studies of multiprotein signalling systems."
Prof Liz Carpenter, Structural Genomics Consortium, University of Oxford. "Structures of human ion channels, TREKs and TRPs, by X-ray, xFEL and cryoEM."
Prof Jonas Emsley, School of Pharmacy, University of Nottingham. "Investigation of the contact system assembly and activation."
Dr Simon Kolstoe, School of Biological Sciences, University of Portsmouth. "Determining the molecular interactions of serum amyloid P component."
Prof Neil McDonald, The Francis Crick Institute and Birkbeck College, London. "Dissecting and exploiting RET receptor tyrosine kinase signalling."
Prof Laurence Pearl FRS, School of Life Sciences, University of Sussex. "Phosphorylation dependent assembly of the DNA Damage Response."
Prof Helen Saibil FRS, Department of Biological Sciences, Birkbeck. "Protein aggregation, chaperones and disaggregation."
Patrick Shaw-Stewart, Douglas Instruments Ltd. "Microseed matrix-screening (rMMS): introduction, theory, practice and a new technique for membrane protein crystallization in LCP."
Prof Garry Taylor, School of Biology, University of St Andrews. "An engineered multivalent sialic acid binding biologic as a preventative of influenza."
Dr Marcus Winter. "Rigaku Oxford Diffraction: Advances in Crystallography.
As usual, the registration fee will include one year's membership of the BCA.
The closing date for registration is Friday 9th December 2016.
