The Novo Nordisk Foundation and the Department of Biology are pleased to invite you to participate in a three day symposium on transcirption factors and their interactions with special focus on the role of intrinsic disorder. Topics include ensemble characterization, mechanisms, networks, structures, and in vivo function. Accordingly, speakers represent diverse fields such as physics, biochemistry, structural biology, pharmacology, and cell biology. It is a specific aim of the symposium to facilitate intensive discussions among experienced and younger scientists, especially PhD students and postdocs, on central topics as presented by the speakers. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring posters. Based on submitted poster abstracts two younger speakers will be selected for oral presentations.
