1st South East Asia Conference on Crystal Engineering (SEACCE)
2016-09-05 to 2016-09-07
Department of Chemistry, University of Sri Jayewardenepura, Colombo, Sri Lanka
Three crystal engineering meetings, initially started as tri-nation (China-India-Singapore) series, were held in Singapore (2011), China (2012) and India (2014). The overall enthusiasm and interest these meeting generated over the years provided optimism for further expansion of crystal engineering within the region. To make the scientific exchanges more inclusive and participatory, and also in keeping with the theme of the International Year of Crystallography 2014 to "bringing nations together" with science, it is now felt that other countries in this region should be included as part of this initiative. Such expansion was felt to be essential for the propagation, popularization and growth of crystal engineering in this region. Thus, the theme of CIS was morphed as the South and East Asia Conference on Crystal Engineering, SEACCE in 2014. link

Towards novel therapies: Emerging insights from structural and molecular biology
2017-03-06 to 2017-03-08
Groningen, The Netherlands
Molecular and structural biology are currently witnessing revolutionary developments, which are providing unprecedented insight in the mechanisms of processes catalyzed by biomacromolecules. The fundamental progress is tremendously exciting, and at the same time offers an ever more sophisticated platform to combat human diseases. This Conference will focus on three areas where progress has been spectacular, each intimately related to human disease: structural neurobiology, bacterial machines and infectious diseases, and regulation and cancer. The conference will provide examples of the use of structural knowledge to develop compounds of great therapeutic promise, and highlight how compounds designed for potential therapeutic use have tremendous value as handles to study fundamental mechanisms of action. By bringing together scientists from different backgrounds (from Academia and industry) who share a profound interest in structural and molecular biology we aim to create a setting in which the links between different disciplines will be emphasized. In addition, students and postdocs will see the similarities, differences and interactions between industry and academia, which may help in their future career choices. link
