A Discussion Meeting of the British Biophysical Society
- The National Centre for Macromolecular Hydrodynamics was formed in 1987 as a central Facility, supported by the UK Research Councils for the measurement and interpretation of the solution structure of macromolecules in terms of their sizes, shapes and interactions.
- The Facility provides the basis for both short and long term collaborations and also provides training courses for researchers from Academia and Industry
- Hydrodynamic methods provide important complementary tools to the high resolution biophysical probes such as x-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance, and they can be applied to a wide diversity of macromolecules ranging in composition from proteins, glycans and synthetic polymers and ranging in size from small sugar molecules of a few hundred Daltons to huge bacteriophage viruses of tens of millions of Daltons and even bacterial spores.
- This one day meeting has been designed to show the complementary nature of these approaches and looks at future challenges in macromolecular structure determination in solution and in the crystal.
- The meeting consists of invited speakers and also poster presentations, and will be held at the Sutton Bonington campus of the University of Nottingham.
- There are a limited number of travel bursaries for younger bbs members, apply here
