Under the auspices of the <http://www.nysbc.org/>New York Structural 
Biology Center, and its <http://www.nysbc.org/#participants>member 
institutions, leading investigators will gather in New York in May to 
discuss the future of structural biology. The schedule includes

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.
