Structural biology will provide exceptional new advances in basic biology
and in the understanding and treatment of human disease. Recent advances in
genomics and proteomics provide significant opportunities for structural
biology to define the molecular basis of disease-causative processes, for
the development of new therapeutics. In addition, this detailed
understanding of the building blocks of the cell permit us to integrate the
molecular and cellular levels by investigating macromolecular machines At
this conference, international leaders in the areas of structural biology
magnetic resonance, cryoelectron microscopy, crystallography and
informatics will present their view of where structural biology is now, and
what its future holds.


The meeting will be held over two days with 40-60lectures from the
speakers. There will be coffee and other breaks to encourage
discussions. There is additionally a meeting on
<http://saturn.med.nyu.edu/symposium/2003/program.html>Structural Biology
at NYU Medical Center on the Friday following, May


The meeting will be held in the ARONOW THEATRE in the North Academic Center
of City College of New York. The entrance is at 136th St & Convent Avenue.

<http://www.salilab.org/>After 2003... It is planned to repeat this themed
conference biannually. In the alternate years, the New York Structural
Biology Center will organize conferences of its own investigators, focusing
on giving younger investigators their opportunity to present.
