Advances in COVID-19 Prevention and Treatment Enabled by Structural Biology Research
Virtual Event
May 11-12, 2021

A virtual workshop on Advances in COVID-19 Prevention and Treatment Enabled by Structural Biology Research will be hosted by the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory on May 11 and May 12, 2021.

Broadly, the workshop will present areas where structural biology research, including macromolecular crystallography and cryoelectron microscopy, intersects with in vivo, in vitro, and in silico studies of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19. More precisely, the topics will include (a) viral biology, (b) vaccine, therapeutic, and diagnostic antibody studies, and (c) small-molecule drug discovery as it relates to viral proteases and other viral proteins. In addition, as this year’s events emphasize the need for a coordinated, long-term strategy to prevent future pandemics of zoonotic origin, a broader One Health perspective on viral pathogens will be presented.

The exciting list of speakers includes: Pamela Bjorkman, Andrea Carfi, James Davis, Alice Douangamath, Haley Dugan, Yogesh Gupta, Robert Hoffman, Nicholas Hurlburt, Andrzej Joachimiak, Christine Kreuder Johnson, Youngchang Kim, Fang Li, Jonna Mazet, Jason McLellan, Andrew Mesecar, Arvind Ramanathan, Erica Saphire, Karla Satchell, Natalie Strynadka, Drew Weissman, Ian Wilson, and Cheng Zhang.

The workshop is hosted by Michael Becker (GM/CA@APS), Karolina Michalska (SBC-CAT), and Kay Perry (NE-CAT). It is part of the Virtual APS/CNM User's Meeting and will be held from 10AM to ~ 3PM Central Time on May 11 and May 12, 2021. To attend the workshop, register (for free) for the APS User's Meeting and choose WK #9. You must select both sessions, separately, to register for the workshop.

The extended deadline for registration is April 23, 2021.
