The event will bring together some of the world’s most prominent molecular/chemical/structural biologists for a two day symposium and public event, with our keynote speaker being Stanford University’s Nobel Laureate Professor Brian Kobilka.
Other confirmed speakers include:

Places are limited, and the event is now being advertised both nationally and internationally- so please book your place ASAP at http://www.astburyconversation.leeds.ac.uk/index.php
We had overwhelmingly positive feedback from the last event – and the following is just one example:
“Just a brief message to thank you and say how much I enjoyed the Astbury Conversation. It was one of the best meetings I've been to in recent years - a great set of speakers (some in areas I know well and others who widened my horizons), a very positive environment and a length of meeting that fits in well with busy teaching schedules.”
