After the success of its first symposium on cryo-EM in 2017, the Partnership for Structural Biology (PSB) is pleased to announce a second symposium on "Macromolecules in action " which will take place on 4-5 July 2019 on the EPN campus, Grenoble, France.

Since its inception, structural biology has sought more detail at ever-improved resolutions. Methodological developments have since allowed structural analyses of macromolecular assemblies of increasing size and complexity. However, in order to fully understand the mechanistics and dynamics of complex cellular machineries, it is of crucial importance to place these interdisciplinary results  in an appropriate biological context using information from all resolution levels - from atomic detail to cellular and higher levels of organisation.

The aim of this meeting is to illustrate how the big biological questions are resolved by combining key methods in structural biology  (eg X-ray and neutron crystallography, cryo-EM, NMR and small angle scattering - SAXS and SANS) with other complementary approaches, enhancing our understanding of the dynamic behaviour of macromolecular complexes in the cell.

There will be the possibility to present your own research in a poster session; selected abstracts will be given the opportunity to present a short talk.

Check out the fantastic programme.

Registration starts 15 January 2019, registration ends 30 May 2019

Abstract submission deadline 30 April  2019.

The PSB is pleased to announce the open call for nominations to the PSB Young Investigator Award, which will be attributed during the symposium. More information on the website
