Program

The event will take place from Thursday, May 24 2018 to Friday May 25, 2018

Registration is free but mandatory (25ans.cbs.cnrs.fr/inscription). The conference will be held at the Rabelais amphitheater in the new Faculty of Medicine Arnaud de Villeneuve.

The first half-day will be dedicated to a tribute to Michel Kochoyan, former director of the CBS and involved in many national structures, sadly missing in May 2016. The day will end with an aperitif-dinner that will be served in the honor courtyard in the historic site of the Faculty of Medecine.

An overview of the research conducted at the CBS for 25 years will be given during the following day. During this day alternate lectures in the main areas of research of the CBS, contributions of collaborators and former members of the CBS, and the presentation of posters by doctoral and post-doctoral students.

Visits of the laboratory facilities including structural biology and microscopy platforms will be organized during both days. Participation in one of these visits is proposed in the registration form.

Welcome

 

In 2018, the Center for Structural Biochemistry (CBS) celebrates its 25th anniversary!

Our laboratory has grown steadily since its creation in 1993 and is now counting nearly 90 researchers, engineers, technicians and students gathered in a joint research unit of the University of Montpellier, INSERM and CNRS. The research conducted at the CBS combines many techniques of Structural Biology and Biophysics allowing a multi-scale characterization of the structure and dynamics of molecular complexes involved in biological phenomena.

For its 25th anniversary, the CBS is organizing a half-day tribute to its former Director, Michel Kochoyan, followed by a day of presentations by internationally renowned scientists, collaborators and former CBS members, as well as flash presentations by post-doctorants and PhD students who will present their work in progress. This event will take place on the new site of the Faculty of Medicine Arnaud de Villeneuve, at the CBS where are planned visits of the laboratory and platforms.

Join us in Montpellier to celebrate this event by registering on http://25ans.cbs.cnrs.fr/registration.
