EMBO young investigator programme symposium - chemical approaches to the study of biology

May 7, 2004

Brussels, 06 May 2004

The second European molecular biology organisation (EMBO) young investigator programme symposium will take place at the EMBL in Heidelberg, Germany, on 5 and 6 June, focusing on 'chemical approaches to the study of biology'.

Chemical approaches have always played a crucial role in the study of biological processes. The use of chemical expertise to study complex biological phenomena within cellular systems has led to the development of a research field that has become known as 'chemical biology'.

The aim of this meeting is to bring chemists and biologists together and showcase the application of chemical approaches, most of which are made possible by organic synthesis, to the study of biology. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about chemical approaches to cellular imaging, signal transduction, cell division, gene expression, structural biology and new possibilities to generate biologically important molecules.
