John Kuriyan is an innovative world-leader in the application of x-ray crystallography to important questions of biological mechanism including the regulation of kinases.
Join in a panel discussion on the future of X-ray Macromolecule Crystallography and Structural Biology, including current and future trends in complementary approaches such as Cryo-EM, XFEL and protein design. What are the implications for academic science, commercial applications, opportunities to innovate, and careers?
Tamir Gonen is at the forefront of developing the approach of mico electron diffraction, which has the potential to transform the practice of crystallography.
Janet Iwasa and Tom Goddard
Janet Iwasa is a highly innovative leader in the field of molecular animation and illustration. She creates accurate and compelling molecular visualizations that bring molecular models of biological function to life and guide development and testing of mechanistic hypotheses. Bring models and illustrations to share and discuss.Janet's TED talk
Tom Goddard is the creator behind Chimera, a leading progtram for interactive visualization and analysis of molecular structures. Tom will discuss the next generation ChimeraX molecular visualizer.
Paul Adams is the leader of the Phenix Consortium which has developed a comprehensive structure solution and refinement package. Bring your questions, and problems and learn about the newest features and tricks of the trade.
