Welcome!

The goal of the meeting is to share developments in technologies appropriate for the determination of the structure of membrane proteins, membrane protein complexes with other proteins and ligands, and to highlight recent results.  The meeting brings together keynote lectures, oral presentations and poster presentations.  Subjects range from membrane protein construct design, expression to mass spectrometry, spectroscopic, X-ray diffraction, electron microscopy imaging, and hybrid approaches. 

Industry sponsors are invited to participate fully in the meeting.  Students and postdoctoral scholars are encouraged to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations.  Workshops are offered that share experience and training in most recent developments in areas including but are not limited to membrane protein expression systems, protein purification, solubilization, crystallization, LCP, free electron laser sample preparation, and NMR.
