Structural Biology Discussion Group

Structural biology aims direct visualization of macromolecules and therefore provides the most definitive way to describe its mechanisms of action. High resolution cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) is emerging and developing technique in structural biology capable of producing density maps for direct atomic modelling. We gather a discussion group to better understand what is the current practice […]

Mini-symposium on Symbiosis

Symbioses are ubiquitous partnerships in all environments Partnerships between microorganisms have been instrumental in organelle development, e.g. mitochondria, chloroplasts, and hence they are interesting systems to study. This symposium will take a brief look at a few consorting pairs, and is aimed at a broad audience in order to promote discussion and create new networks. All […]

Drug Discovery Seminars: Next generation of inhaled glucocorticoid receptor modulators

Abstract: The glucocorticoid receptor (GR) is a ligand-activated transcription factor that belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily. Glucocorticoids (GC) are widely used to treat a broad range of inflammatory disorders and inhaled GCs are a well-established class of drugs for the control of asthma. However, prolonged use at the highest approved doses increases the […]
