Molecular structures in biology: from haemoglobin to the coronavirus from X-ray diffraction to cryoEM

We are pleased to welcome this lecture from Sir Professor Richard Henderson FRS  (MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge) who was awarded a Nobel Prize in 2017 for his work “developing cryo-electron microscopy for the high-resolution structure determination of biomolecules in solution."

During this lecture Professor Henderson will discuss the structure determination of single molecules and complex systems, including viruses, that are important for understanding biological processes and developing drugs and vaccines. His lecture will include discussions about the structure of the coronavirus and will include the opportunity for asking questions.

This event is open to all.

Bookings will close 1hr prior to the start of the event. Registrants will receive details of how to join the online talk 24hrs before the event, via their provided email address. Please contact the DMU Events Office on if you have any questions.
