Protein structure: from methods via structure and function to drug design

Date: 15-Aug-2017

Contact: Claudia Alen Amaro


This symposium is held in honor of Wim Hol as an inspirator of science, a rigorous and enthousiastic mentor. It will give a broad overview of current state-of-the art science in protein structure and function. The meeting is open to anyone interested, with a special invitation to anyone who has collaborated or otherwise been associated with Wim. However, please note that registration is required:
