BioCAT is offering its third MuscleX workshop. The Biophysics Collaborative Access Team (BioCAT) is funded by National Institutes of Health (NIH) with its mission to operate state-of-the-art x-ray facilities for the study of the structure and dynamics of biological systems under non-crystalline conditions similar to their functional states in living tissues. We will have an introductory presentation of the scientific missions supported at BioCAT as well as a series of talks highlighting recent muscle studies either using X-ray diffraction or other structural techniques.

The workshop will take place from 5/18/23 to 5/19/23 and will be entirely virtual (via Zoom). See the schedule below for details.


All participants this year will be remote participants. There is no cost associated with the workshop, but registration is required for administrative purposes.
