An introduction to principles and techniques.

Presenting material not typically offered in undergraduate programs, this three day workshop will educate STEM majors and aspiring MD/PhD candidates on the impact and basic principles of structural biology and commonly-used structural biology techniques.
- AUG 14: Introduction to structural biology, the significance of protein structures and functions and a hands-on PyMOL tutorial given by HWI students and faculty.
- AUG 15: More advanced material, provided by guest lecturers, on the available techniques and their advantages and limitations.
- AUG 16: Focuses on the array of scientific careers available. Featuring guest talks from scientists at key partners on the Buffalo-Niagara Medical Campus who will describe their work and the types of careers they support. The final day also includes tours of the various facilities on the BNMC and a networking social event.
