UK-Korean Structural Biology Symposium

Aug 16. till Aug 16.

UK-Korean Structural Biology Symposium

As part of an international partnership scheme funded by The MRC and the Korea Health Industry Development Institute (KHIDI), we are pleased to announce a one day structural biology symposium at Diamond Light Source which will highlight exciting current structural biology research exploiting state of the art facilities for Macromolecular Crystallography (MX), CryoEM and XFELs.

16/08/20182018-08-16 - 16/08/20182018-08-16
Diamond Light Source

The symposium brings together a host of leading researchers in these fields, and provides a fantastic opportunity for students and researchers working in the field of structural biology and associated disciplines to meet some of the leading researchers in structural biology. Moreover, delegates will hear first-hand about the capabilities of the Korean Synchrotron and recently opened XFEL which make up the Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL) at the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) and the opportunities available as well as research highlights from leading Korean structural biologists.
