13 December 2013 at the Musée de la Poste amphitheatre (Paris 15th Arrondissement)
The Aviesan Alliance’s Molecular and Structural Bases of Living Organisms (BMSV) ITMO organized a one-day meeting on emerging approaches in biophysics and structural biology, with a special focus on the contribution of free electron lasers.
The objective of this meeting were to present these strategic themes for the BMSV ITMO, and to invite renowned national and international speakers to speak on their work in these areas.
