Protein science has undergone revolutionary changes in the last decade. Vast amounts of genomic information inform our analyses of protein biology, structure, and function. The elucidation of high-resolution molecular structures has become almost routine, while new technologies provide unprecedented insight into mechanistic details, molecular assemblies of increasing complexity, and views of processes as they occur in living cells. Advances in experimental methodology have been mirrored by advances in computational approaches and together the two are providing unprecedented insight into dynamics and mechanism. The 2019 Proteins Gordon Research Conference and will bring together experimental, theoretical and computational biochemists, biophysicists, chemists, chemical biologists, biologists and bioengineers who study the diverse aspects of protein science including protein function, dynamics, regulation, folding, and evolution. Recent exciting advances and the strong history of this meeting promise to provide an outstanding conference experience for participants at all career stages. Invited speakers will highlight a wide range of approaches for addressing critical and emerging problems in protein research. Speaking slots have been reserved for young investigators and for late-breaking results presented in short talks and "Poster Previews". Poster sessions will provide an opportunity for broad dissemination of participants' research, and the opportunity for deeper discussions of research findings. The GRC and accompanying GRS are meeting in the relaxed, beautiful setting of the White Mountains at Holderness, New Hampshire. Through collegial formal sessions, lunch time informal discussions, information discussions, poster sessions, social events, and afternoon recreational activities, ideas will flow freely between sub-disciplines and generations.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. The preliminary program will be available by October 15, 2018. Please check back for updates.
