ISMB Symposium, 3-4 June 2004
To launch the Institute of Structural Molecular Biology (ISMB) at UCL and Birkbeck, an international symposium was held on 3-4 June 2004 at University College London. The programme (below) was very popular and the symposium was a great success.

Some photos from the ISMB Lunch Symposium are now available.
