Use of high pressure for the study of
conformational states and dynamics in biological systems


IMBP 2014
7th International Meeting on Biomolecules under Pressure
July 8th - 11th 2014, Montpellier, France


Dear Colleagues

the next International Meeting in Biomolecules Under Pressure (7 th  IMBP), which will be held from July 8 th to 11 th  , 2014 in Montpellier (France), as a satellite meeting of HPBB 2014 (Nantes, France, July 15 th -18 th ).

As in previous meetings, these days will provide an excellent international forum for sharing knowledge, and new developments in the field, as well as an opportunity to present recent results. We highly encourage PhD students, post-docs and group leaders to contribute a talk towards an exciting program.

This meeting follows the former one organized by Kazuyuki  Akasaka at Otsu (Japan) in November 2011). Montpellier is a wonderful city, close to the Mediterranean Sea, and especially agreeable in summer. Montpellier is easily accessible from Paris (3h by TGV, 1h by plane).

We look forward to seeing you soon at Montpellier!

With my best wishes for 2014: a lot of pressure on your samples, as few as possible on your shoulders...

With best regards,

IMBP 2009

5th International Meeting on Biomolecules under Pressure
August 3rd - 5th 2009, Regensburg, Germany


We are delighted to host the 5 th International Meeting on Biomolecules under Pressure in Regensburg. The meeting is supposed to be a platform for stimulating discussions on using high pressure techniques to study and manipulate biomolecules. The program is open to questions from a broad range of research areas including protein folding, the molecular basis of adaptation of life to extreme conditions, protein aggregation and the formation of amyloid fibers, dissociation of oligomeric proteins and applications of high pressure in biotechnology and medicine.

We look forward to bringing together as many researchers with different backgrounds as possible!

Best regards,

Hans Robert Kalbitzer, Meeting Organizer
