5th Banff Meeting on Structural Dynamics
2017-02-19 to 2017-02-22
Alberta,Canada

Recent years have seen dramatic successes in providing ‘atomic level views’ of important transient phenomena in materials, molecular and even biomolecular systems. These landmark studies were enabled by breakthroughs in high time-resolution x-ray and electron diffraction, crystallography, spectroscopy and imaging.

The future of this emerging field looks incredibly bright, with major advances in electron source intensity and coherence as well dramatic new capabilities from X-ray free-electron lasers. Along with new methods to take advantage of these sources, we have new disruptive technologies that are driving this field. The Banff Meeting in Structural Dynamics was founded to provide the perfect forum to disseminate the latest spectacular developments in opening up new vistas with atomic clarity. The first four meetings held in 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2015 were a resounding success and will be continued to provide an opportunity to meet and discuss current problems and chart a course for further successes.

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.
