Bethesda, MD – This FASEB Science Research Conference focuses on recent advances in the methods for protein structure analysis. The goal of this meeting is to promote the discovery and exchange of new methods and techniques for the analysis of protein structure, to facilitate the application of methods in protein structure analysis in the pursuit of solutions to biological problems, and to support and foster the education of researchers in the techniques of protein chemistry, protein structure analysis, and proteomics.
These fields are being widely applied to a number of different biological questions, and this meeting uniquely addresses a broad base of researchers in order to encourage discussion and consideration of new approaches. This conference brings together researchers from mass spectrometry, structural biology, biochemistry, biophysics, bioinformatics and basic and molecular biology to discuss the methods that are being applied to address pertinent biological questions.
The interdisciplinary nature of this conference facilitates unique approaches, as the varied backgrounds of the attendees helps to bring new insights to the biological systems being studied. The MPSA conferences have been held biennially since 1974 and represent a pre-eminent forum for the presentation and discussion of the broad scope of protein chemistry methods. This meeting is well-suited for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and young investigators as they will have an opportunity to meet with leaders in the field.

FASEB has announced a total of 35 Science Research Conferences (SRC) in 2014.
Registration opens January 17, 2014. For more information about an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2014 SRCs, please visit http://www.faseb.org/SRC.
Since 1982, FASEB SRC has offered a continuing series of inter-disciplinary exchanges that are recognized as a valuable complement to the highly successful society meetings. Divided into small groups, scientists from around the world meet intimately and without distractions to explore new approaches to those research areas undergoing rapid scientific changes.
In efforts to expand the SRC series, potential organizers are encouraged to contact SRC staff at SRC@faseb.org. Proposal guidelines can be found at http://www.faseb.org/SRC.
