The Kastritis Lab in “Bringing Molecular Structure to Life: 50 years of PDB” Conference!

The conference for the anniversary of 50 years from the creation of the Protein Data Bank took place from the 20th to the 22nd of October, organized by EMBL, with online participation. Of course our lab could not miss the opportunity to attend, both for celebrating this important milestone and for showcasing our research!

Fotis, Christian and Ioannis (you can find their info in our People section) set up their posters and walked the booth visitors through our latest results in Cell Extracts research, resulting in very stimulating discussions.

We are also extremely proud to announce that Fotis snagged the 1st place poster prize of the conference, highlighting the impact that our research has on the field (and of course his presentation and graphical illustration skills)! Congratulations Fotis!

Below you can see our lab members’ posters and we also hope to meet you at a future conference (maybe even in person, who knows) so we can discuss all things Cryo-EM, computational structural biology and cell extracts!
