Welcome to the 8th Murnau Conference

Focus Topic: New Frontiers in Structural Biology
Date: 16-19 September 2020


We are very sad to announce that our conference will not take place this year.

The health and safety of our participants is our first priority and given the unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe this is the right decision.

We hope to see you again in 2022!


The Murnau Conference on Structural Biology is the biannual meeting of the study group Structural Biology of the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM), taking place in the beautiful scenery of the Alpine foothills of Bavaria.

During three days in September of 2020, established leaders of the field and younger scientists will come together for discussions in a relaxed atmosphere. Besides lectures given by invited speakers, there is room for additional oral presentations and posters. Industry exhibitions and social events further complement the program.


In the interest of fostering discussions and retaining a focused meeting, the number of participants will be restricted to a maximum of 200.


Abstract Submission Deadlines:
