Structural Biology and Biophysics Seminar (SBBS)

D6: Structural Biology and Biophysics I – 22827 (Fall 2023)
D7: Structural Biology and Biophysics II – 24284 (Spring 2024)

(2 hrs/week; 1 CP) 

Stephan Grzesiek, Sebastian Hiller, Rod Lim, Timm Maier

The Structural Biology and Biophysics Seminar series (SBBS) is organized by PhD students of the Biozentrum, University of Basel since 2009. World-leading scientists are invited to present their current work to an audience of students, researchers and PIs. Typical lectures in this series describe applications of advanced structural biology and biophysics methods to solve biological problems. Methods include NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, cryo-electron microscopy, surface plasmon resonance and atomic force microscopy, but not only. The list of the past SBBS speakers is accessible here.

The talks take place on Tuesdays, the time will depend on speaker, room U1.197

Unless mentioned, attendance is open to all interested people, without registration. The Fall Semester 2023 is the following:
