Dear Colleague,

We would like to extend an invitation for you and your group to attend the first Ohio Valley Macromolecular Crystallography Symposium. The event will take place November 18 at Procter&Gamble Health Care Research Center in northeast Cincinnati.

This meeting will feature a number of practical talks relating to the process of solving macromolecular crystal structures.

The day-long symposium will be organized into four sessions and a panel discussion:

  • Session 1 - Cloning and expression of target proteins
  • Session 2 - Protein purification and characterization
  • Session 3 - Producing diffraction-quality crystals
  • Session 4 - Structure solution techniques and finished structures
  • Panel discussion - Careers in academia, industry, and government

We would like to feature a blend of short talks (10 minutes long) presented by faculty, industry, postdocs, and students. The emphasis will be on useful techniques along the path towards structure determination, with only a few talks on the final structures.

Registration is now open - www.xtals.org - and will continue until November 13th. Interested individuals are encouraged to contact the organizers with suggested topics for presentation. In particular, faculty members who could recommend a student or postdoc from their group to give a short talk of general interest in one of these areas are asked to contact us.

In order to keep costs minimal so that whole groups (not just faculty/PIs) will be able to participate, there will be no registration fee. Lunch and refreshments will be generously provided by P&G Pharmaceuticals. Anyone traveling from a distance can contact Artem or Andrew for suggestions regarding local accommodations.

Once an itinerary has been finalized, it will be sent to everyone. Please feel free to pass along this information to any colleagues who might be interested.

Best regards,

Andrew & Artem
