Nature Conference: Functional dynamics – visualizing molecules in action

Category: Meeting

The Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University, NatureNature ChemistryNature CommunicationsNature Methods, and Nature Physics are pleased to present:

Functional dynamics – visualizing molecules in action
November 6-8, 2019
Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona, USA

The abstract submission deadline is August 12, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. EST.

Function is intimately linked to structural and electronic changes. While long inferred from indirect observations, ongoing technical developments are now opening up opportunities for the direct visualization of such functionally important molecular changes with temporal and spatial resolutions that would be unthinkable a decade ago. This conference will explore the methods that make it possible to watch molecules in action, and illustrate the adage of "seeing is believing" by showcasing how these cutting-edge methods are pushing the boundaries of our knowledge in areas that range from biology and chemistry to physics and materials science.

Anticipated to be the first-of-its-kind in the world, you'll also have the opportunity to visit the laboratory where scientists will be making final preparations for "first light"— the initial activation of ASU's compact X-ray free electron laser (CXFEL).
