Structural biology is a rapidly developing field of life sciences. It is structural studies that allow us to look into the mechanisms of individual components of a living cell - proteins, lipids, nucleic acids at the molecular and atomic level. Knowledge of the spatial structure of various cellular targets: receptors, ion channels and supramolecular complexes, as well as an understanding of the mechanisms of their interaction with ligands and biological membranes makes it possible to implement rational drug design.
To highlight the latest achievements and newest methods in the field of structural research, IBCh RAS holds a school for young scientists “Structural biology: main problems and approaches to their solution”. The scientific program of the School includes lectures by leading scientists working in various fields of molecular biology and representing the basic structural methods.
