Current topics in protein chemistry symposium, 17th Nov. 2017

The Kaj Ulrik Linderstrøm-Lang Centre welcomes you at our yearly scientific symposia on protein science in November 2020. The last instance was entitled 'Protein folding and stability – From molecules to disease' and took place 12th November 2019.

The symposium included talks by internationally recognized speakers, a poster session and plenty of opportunities for networking. See and download the full program here.

More than 250 participants and 45 posters participated and contributed to a successful day. See the list of posters here, and the list of participants here.
