                      MARCH 1-3, 1996

Dear Colleague:

        As we announce the establishment of the Structural Biology Program
at the University of Texas Medical Branch, we would like to invite you and
your colleagues to join us in our inaugural celebration by participating in
our Structural Biology Symposium scheduled for March 1-3, 1996.  This
meeting will bring together scientists who are interested in applying
insights from structural biology and solution thermodynamics to solve
biological and biomedical problems. The speakers at the symposium are
distinguished researchers from a wide spectrum of scientififc disciplines.

        If you are planning to attend the Symposium, please inform us of your
coming as well as who may be accompanying you by no later than  February
20th. Furthermore, if you intend to participate in the poster session, or
wish to present a talk in the satellite Sunday afternoon NMR Workshop
offered in collaboration with Varian Instruments, all abstracts must be
received no later than February 20th as well.

        Regarding accomodations for the event, a block of rooms has been
reserved for Symposium attendants at the beachfront Hotel Galvez.  However,
prior to your arrival in Galveston it is necessary that you fill out the
