Following two years of virtual meetings, the Next Generation Biophysics Symposium returned this year to the LMB’s Max Perutz Lecture Theatre, as well as welcoming virtual attendees all over the world. Organised jointly by the LMB, AstraZeneca, Imperial College London and MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences (LMS), the annual meeting examines the application of cutting-edge biophysical techniques in complex biological settings. The talks are now available to view on the LMB’s YouTube channel.
This year, lecture topics ranged from ‘RNA Dynamics’ and ‘Imaging Across Scales’ to ‘Single Molecular Applications’ and ‘Computational approaches and Structure Prediction’. As with previous symposia, researchers from both academic and industry backgrounds were welcomed for stimulating talks and discussions on how new and emerging technologies could be applied to address challenging questions in the future.
David Baker, Director of the University of Washington’s Institute for Protein Design delivered this year’s keynote address on ‘Protein design using deep learning.’
The symposium was organised by Chris Johnson and Stephen McLaughlin of the LMB’s Biophysics Facility, Maria Flocco and Geoff Holdgate, both at AstraZeneca, and David Rueda, Chair in Molecular and Cellular Biophysics at the Department of Medicine, Imperial College London and Group Leader at MRC LMS.
Stephen McLaughlin, Head of the LMB’s Biophysics Facility, commented “It was a joy to welcome everyone back in person to the LMB for an exciting day of talks and be able to continue discussions during the lunch and tea breaks.”
