Celebrating the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017
Arrhenius Laboratory, Stockholm University, December 9, 2017

Visualizing the structures of biological molecular machines is an absolute requirement in order to understand their mechanism. Cryo-EM is a key method for this visualization, and due to the recent technical developments it can provide refined atomic structures even for structure-based drug design. The symposium coincides with the Nobel Prize that has been awarded for the development of the cryo- EM and will present the methodological progress as well as the applications to central biological questions. It brings together world-leading experts, Swedish researchers, and industrial scientists to discuss ideas for further advancement in this exciting and rapidly evolving field.

The symposium is free of charge but requires registration via symposium website: http://www.mmk.su.se/cryo-em-symsposium. All researchers are welcome to take active part and contribute with posters. Deadline for registration: November 20, 2017.
