Karplus to cohost the 2014 Northwest Crystallography Workshop

Workshop convenes macromolecular crystallography researchers

Oregon State University’s College of Science is proud to sponsor and host the 2014 Northwest Crystallography Workshop June 20-22 at the Linus Pauling Science Center on campus.

Hosted at various venues throughout the Pacific Northwest since 1981, this biennial conference brings together researchers, rising stars and students in the region who are interested both in using macromolecular crystallography to solve structures and in developing and enhancing methods.

Former University of Oregon physics professor and previous director of its Institute of Molecular Physics, Brian Matthews will deliver the keynote speech, "From Bragg's Hometown to the MRC Cambridge and Beyond: Experiencing the Progress of Crystallography, June 21.

The conference opens Friday evening with a poster session and reception. Click here for more details about the program, individual sessions and presenters.

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 2014 the "International Year of Crystallography."

Biochemistry & Biophysics professor Andrew Karplus and Dale Tronrud, a research associate in the P. Andrew Karplus lab, are hosting and organizing the conference. The College of Science is one of the major sponsors for the conference.
