Supramolecular Chemistry on Proteins

29 – 30 September 2015
University of Duisburg-Essen, Essen, Germany

The first CRC 1093 International Symposium will focus on the young and emerging field of Supramolecular Chemistry and Biology. Sessions will comprehend presentations by internationally renowned speakers who are leading experts in their field. Their different background will contribute to the understanding of the underlying principles of protein recognition, manipulation and functional modulation by external agents. Moreover principal investigators from our CRC will present their research.
