Welcome to the 44th Lorne Conference on
Protein Structure and Function

10th - 14th February 2019

The goal of this meeting is to highlight leading edge protein science, irrespective of its focus. The meeting includes oral and poster presentation sessions, a young investigator session, trade workshops, social events and trade displays. 

The majority of the symposium program will be selected from submitted abstracts providing a great opportunity for researchers to share exciting techniques and developments and showcase their research progress across a range of themes including target identification, strategies for hit generation, hit-to-lead, lead optimisation and clinical development.
