Join us in Lund for a lunch-to-lunch scientific symposium from Wednesday (October 9th) to Friday (October 11st), noon to noon.
Development in the area of structural biology methods combined with new computational possibilities has highlighted the importance of combining different methods in order to maximize the output. With the rapid progress and improvements in the fields of macromolecular crystallography, Cryo-EM, small angle scattering, electron diffraction and use of XFELs, the LINXS theme INTEGRATIVE STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY is formed to advance cutting-edge research and to encourage new users to utilize integrative structure biology to address key scientific questions.

The LINXS Integrative Structural Biology theme is established to promote work that will make it easier for the life science community to use and combine different structural biology methods. Following up the highly successful 1st LINXS Symposium on Integrative Structural Biology that was held in Lund in November 2018, we are now inviting interested to join us for the 2nd LINXS Integrative Structural Biology Symposium that will focus on advanced, cutting-edge research in structural biology. The program is centered around invited internationally leading keynote speakers, that will be mixed with shorter contributed talks selected from the submitted abstracts (expected for PhD-students and postdocs), as well as poster sessions.We especially encourage PhD students and young researchers to attend the meeting to discuss science and benefit from this excellent platform for national and international networking. The target group is researchers from academia as well as researchers from industry and large-scale facilities such as MAX IV and ESS. Both experienced specialists and researchers with more recently established interests in integrative structural biology are expected to greatly benefit from the symposium.
The registration deadline has been extended through September 28.
