Overview

The workshop will focus on the influence of hydration and crowding on protein dynamics. Recent experiments and simulations have revealed the non-trivial role of the molecular environment for the function of biomolecular systems. The problem is highly interdisciplinary, requiring contributions from NMR, single-molecule and high-order IR spectroscopy as well as from theoretical and computational approaches. Getting together major experts in the field, the workshop aims to foster communication and new multidisciplinary research.
