Past Events - Meetings - Workshops - Conferences
As science becomes increasingly interdisciplinary, the Biophysical Society Annual Meeting continues its long-held reputation for bringing together leading scientists from the all over the world who work at the interface of the life, physical, and computational sciences.
The dynamic five-day meeting provides attendees with opportunities to share their latest unpublished findings and learn the newest emerging techniques and applications.
Despite its nearly 5,000 attendees, the Meeting is noted for maintaining its “small meeting” feel beginning with the Saturday Subgroup symposia, which allow attendees to meet within their scientific communities. It is also known for its vitality, demonstrated by the over 600 highly interactive daily poster presentations, the more than 500 speakers selected from submitted abstracts, the many career development programs for those working in academia, industry, and agencies throughout the world, and its advocacy and education programs.
The 2024 Lorne Proteins Satellite Meeting will highlight cutting edge research in the field of ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like (UBL) proteins.Ubiquitin and UBLs are post-translational modifications that play a crucial role in the regulation of protein stability, localisation, interactions, and activity and therefore control nearly all processes within the eukaryotic cell. These central signalling functions make the ubiquitin and UBL systems fundamental targets for drug development. Moreover, the ubiquitin system is essential for the mechanism of action of an innovative small molecule drug modality termed proteolysis targeting chimeras (PROTACs). PROTACs recruit the ubiquitin machinery to a disease-causing protein to induce its ubiquitination and proteasomal degradation, therefore enabling targeting of proteins previously considered undruggable.
The meeting will bring together leading experts in the ubiquitin field, spanning from structure and mechanisms of the enzymes catalysing ubiquitination and de-ubiquitination, the regulation of cellular signalling by ubiquitin or UBLs, as well as novel approaches in targeting or utilising the ubiquitin system for the treatment of human diseases.
A one-day workshop to provide training for chemists who have little or no experience in designing crystallisation processes and lack the theoretical background. The event will include a lecture introducing the fundamental principles of industrial crystallisation.

A particular focus will be on the integration of cryo-ET and cryo-EM with complementary imaging techniques, e.g. imaging across scales as well as other ‘omics’ technologies such as proteomics, genomics, and metabolomics. The integration of cryo-EM in the drug-discovery workflow will also be examined.

The mornings will include lectures and stimulating round table discussions. The afternoons focus on hands-on practicals to reinforce the concepts and topics covered earlier in the day. Users are welcome to bring their own samples and/or data.
The British Zeolite Association (BZA) was founded in 1977 to provide a forum where zeolite scientists could meet to review and share their latest findings. Today the (ordered) nanoporous materials community in the UK numbers several hundred active research scientists and engineers, from both industry and the academic sector, who reflect the great variety of applications of micro- and mesoporous materials, from catalysis and petrochemical processing to chemical separations, detergents and environmental clean-up.
The major event of the BZA’s year is the annual meeting, which brings together scientists from the UK and overseas to present and discuss the latest research in the area. Strong emphasis is given to presentations from research students and young postdoctoral workers.
National Crystallization Center User Meeting!
The virtual meeting is scheduled on Friday 3/31/2023 from 10am-3pm (Eastern). Registration link
The User Meeting will feature invited speakers Professor Karen Allen (Boston University), Professor Krystle McLaughlin (Vassar College), and Professor Erik Yukl (New Mexico State University), a panel discussion, and updates about operations in the HTX Center.
Interested in giving a contributed talk at the meeting? We have a few slots available for user talks (including students or postdocs) who would like to share their research stories!
Interested in having your work featured in the Crystals of the Month feature? We are always excited to highlight papers and structures that result from the crystal screening at the HTX Center!
Email sbowman at hwi.buffalo.edu if interested.
Abstracts are invited in the following areas:
Bio-Crystallography I: Signaling, macromolecular interactions and new structures
Bio-Crystallography II: Other technologies (neutron diffraction, small-angle scattering)
Bio-Crystallography III: Structure-based design
Bio-Crystallography IV: Synchrotrons and high throughput methods
Inorganic crystal structures
Crystallography in materials sciences
Micro- and nano-crystalline materials (powder diffraction, disordered material)
Extreme/non-ambient and high-pressure conditions
Solid-state physics in crystallography
Organic molecules and coordination compounds
Instrumentation and technology development
Electron crystallography and microscopy
Complex, aperiodic and disordered structures
Crystallography in art and heritage
Abstract submission deadline: 15 November 2022
The course is intended mainly for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young scientists, along with commercial/industrial researchers in the area of structural biology from all across the globe. The school is not meant as an introductory level course to protein crystallography. It is designed more for applicants with reasonable expertise in crystallography and experience with the CCP4 suite. The purpose of the school is to address specific problems that the applicants face while collecting diffraction data and while solving and refining novel structures. Applicants with crystals for data collection or with already collected data will be given strong consideration, although these are not mandatory requirements.
Several of the leading PX software developers from around the world will present lectures and tutorials on their software and will also be available to help with problems during hands-on sessions of the school.
