APS Cross-Cut Review: Macromolecular Crystallography at the APS

All APS staff and users are welcome to attend the fourth APS cross-cut review, entitled "Macromolecular Crystallography at the APS."   This review is the fourth in a series of reviews designed to provide the APS Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) with an overview of APS scientific accomplishments, programs, and capabilities in a specific area.  The review panel will be chaired by John Helliwell, University of Manchester (john.helliwell@man.ac.uk) and includes all APS SAC members plus two additional experts.  The review report will serve as a baseline document of current capabilities in this area, with especially noteworthy or unique areas highlighted.  The eight scientific talks will be preceded by a welcome and charge to the committee given by Murray Gibson and an overview presentation by John Helliwell.  A Panel Discussion will follow the scientific talks, and the review will end with a poster session and no-host lunch.  Abstracts of the individuals talks and copies of the presentations will be posted on this web site as they are received.  

Questions can be directed to Susan Strasser.
