Technological Advances in Structural Biology and Biophysics

10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Co-Chaired by:

Main Auditorium, Natcher Conference Center

Progress in structural biology and biophysics is heavily dependent on underlying technological and methodological advances. This symposium will present recent results from four NIH labs that are actively involved in research in structural biology and biophysics that pushes the limits of current experimental approaches. Topics to be discussed include advances in nuclear magnetic resonance methods that expand the range and size of systems that can be structurally characterized, advances in time-resolved protein crystallography that permit the direct visualization of dynamic processes, and advances in electron microscopy that enhance the resolution at which macromolecular structures can be determined.
