In its second chapter, the virtual workshop will highlight the revolution in the study of Macromolecular Structure & Dynamics led by developments in:

• High-flux synchrotron beamlines
• Optical physics of micro-crystallites
• Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM)
• High-performance computing.

The workshop series introduce cutting edge developments in the study of complex Biological and Organic materials. Their links to the core principles of Physics, Information Science, Molecular Biology and Organic Chemistry will be emphasized. It aims to build a BioPhysics research community within Pakistan in addition to collaborations with regional and international partners. Dedicated round table sessions will involve discussions about how the multidisciplinary culture required to nurture this area can be created.

This workshop will draw together national and international speakers/researchers working at the interfacial disciplines of Structural Biology, Molecular Dynamics and Materials Physics.
