New Orleans Protein Folding Intergroup

2006 Schedule

The New Orleans Protein Folding Intergroup, founded in January 1999, is composed of New Orleans area academic research laboratories from Tulane, Xavier, and Loyola Universities, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, and the University of New Orleans, 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.

Meeting on

at Sam and Kalaya's House
4526 Camp St
, New Orleans, LA
