AI3SD & RSC-CICAG Protein Structure Prediction Conference

 

Registration is now open for the AI3SD & RSC-CICAG Protein Structure Prediction Conference. This online event looks like it will a brilliant meeting with a fantastic lineup of speakers. June 16 @ 9:45 am - June 17 @ 5:00 pm Free

The challenge of protein structure prediction has advanced significantly in recent years, yet translation into impact, particularly in drug discovery, remains open. Furthermore, while we as a community have advanced in predicting protein structures, they offer only static snapshots, and do not yet consider effectively the protein dynamics and conformational change. Bringing together scientists working in this area, and those who work with the resulting data, this conference is intended as a pulse check on the status of the field and where we will start seeing impact and improvements for human benefit. The two days will contain a number of talks from speakers who are key opinion leaders in the field, together with an opportunity to present short talks and posters to a wider audience. Day 1 will finish with an online social event (separate links will be sent out to register for this closer to the time) and Day 2 and will close with a panel discussion by the speakers, which is intended to be provocative.

Current invited speakers include: Professor John Moult (University of Maryland), Dr Chris De Graaf (Sosei Heptares), Professor Debora Marks (Harvard University), Professor Cecilia Clementi (Freie Universität Berlin), Professor Aleksej Zelezniak (Chalmers University of Technology), Dr Oscar Méndez-Lucio (Janssen Pharmaceuticals), Professor Charlotte Deane (University of Oxford), Professor Tudor Oprea (University of New Mexico), Dr Derek Lowe (Novartis), Professor Stephen Burley (RCSB PDB, Rutgers University, USCD).
