SBNet Lecturer 2000

It is a great pleasure to announce that Prof Michael Rossmann (Purdue University) will be the SBNet Lecturer for the year 2000. Prof Rossmann (list of publications) is one of the real pioneers in structural biology. He participated in the early work to determine the structure of hemoglobin and has subsequently solved numerous structures of enzymes but primarily of viruses. All along he has developed new methods to extend the possibility to determine macromolecular structures. In recent years he has incorporated electron microscopy into his field of methods to tackle problems not accessible to crystallography. His name is associated with numerous major achievements.

Prof Rossmann will visit the Swedish structural biology laboratories in the period of 8-18 January, 2001.

Various pictures taken during his trip through Sweden are available.
