The symposium will feature the state of the art on Structural and Cell Biology research, highlighting the importance of multidisciplinary approaches to study biological systems. The scientific program includes four sessions: X-ray Crystallography, Cryo Electron Microscopy, NMR and Molecular Dynamics and Advanced Techniques in Cell Biology Using Synchrotron Radiation. It will offer a valuable opportunity for Brazilian and Latin American students and young researchers to get in touch with experts in various techniques for Biology research.

The symposium is associated to the 24th Meeting of the Brazilian Association of Crystallography (ABCr) that will be held at the Federal University of Paraná, Curitiba, from October 25 to October 26, 2019.
