Conference VenueAre you doing research in the field of Structural biology or Protein research? Then SDICC18 is the conference for you. The 2-day program is packed with 16 speakers, poster sessions, short talks from abstracts, a Meet the Expert session with Patrick Cramer, a conference dinner in La Manufacture and a guided tour through the city. If that wasn't enough the conference is preceded by a satellite meeting in honor of the opening of VIB's new CRYO-EM facility. The inaugural lecture for this occasion will be held by Nobel Laureate Richard Henderson. 

Full program announced 

The leading researchers speaking at this conference will cover a wide variety of topics, ordered in four sessions: 

  • macromolecular machines
  • in situ structural biology
  • structural engineering & drug discovery
  • protein function/dynamics

The opening talk will be given by Natalie Strynadka (University of Columbia, CA) who will discuss Structural hybrid methods to probe the Type III Secretion injectisome of pathogenic bacteria.  On day two James Naismith will showcase his research on putting enzymes to work, making cyclic peptides.
