APS WK#9 (May 11 & 12, 2021) AGENDA: Advances in COVID-19 Prevention and Treatment Enabled by Structural Biology Research

Workshop during the Virtual APS/CNM User’s Meeting

Broadly, the workshop will present areas where structural biology research, including macromolecular crystallography and cryoelectron microscopy, intersects with in vivo, in vitro, and in silico studies of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19. More precisely, the topics will include (a) viral biology, (b) vaccine, therapeutic, and diagnostic antibody studies, and (c) small-molecule drug discovery as it relates to viral proteases and other viral proteins. In addition, as this year’s events emphasize the need for a coordinated, long-term strategy to prevent future pandemics of zoonotic origin, a broader One Health perspective on viral pathogens will be presented.

Join us to listen to a great selection of speakers: Pamela Bjorkman, Andrea Carfi, James Davis, Alice Douangamath, Haley Dugan, Yogesh Gupta, Robert Hoffman, Nicholas Hurlburt, Andrzej Joachimiak, Christine Kreuder Johnson, Youngchang Kim, Fang Li, Jonna Mazet, Jason McLellan, Andrew Mesecar, Fang Li, Arvind Ramanathan, Erica Saphire, Karla Satchell, Natalie Strynadka, Drew Weissman, Ian Wilson, and Cheng Zhang.
