New Orleans Protein Folding Intergroup

2004 Schedule

The New Orleans Protein Folding Intergroup, founded in January 1999, is composed of New Orleans area academic research laboratories from Tulane, Xavier, University of New Orleans and Loyola Universities whose members share a common interest in protein structure and folding.  Our year-round, biweekly meetings are dedicated primarily to the discussion of current research in member laboratories and to the dissemination of important research news from conferences and from the scientific literature.
