Meeting Program


Internationally-recognized experts will share their perspectives on integrative experimental and computational structural biology and their impact on our understanding of fundamental biology and medicine in three and four dimensions. In addition to invited talks, the meeting will feature seven short talks selected from submitted abstracts and a poster session.
