8th Alpbach Workshop: Coiled Coil, Fibrous and Repeat Proteins

The Department of Protein Evolution at the Max Planck Institute for Biology Tübingen invites you to the 8th Alpbach Workshop from September 4 to 9, 2022. It adresses all researchers interested in coiled coils, collagen and other fibrous proteins. Numerous talks and a supporting program will provide an opportunity for scientific exchange and social networking.

In recent years, the meeting has shifted its original focus from muscle, intermediate filaments and the extracellular matrix to take a broader view of fibrous and other repeat proteins, including aspects of engineering and design. The format of the meetings is very informal, with talks in the morning and in the evening.

This workshop will be held in person.
