The International Conference on the Crystallization of Biological Macromolecules (ICCBM) is arranged every two years by the International Organization of Biological Crystallization (IOBCr) and is attended by more than 300 individuals.  This year, BioXFEL represented more than 10% of the invited speakers including:  Drs. Edward Snell, Vadim Cherezov, Petra Fromme, Guillermo Calero, and Alexandra Ros.  Dr. Cherezov was recently elected to the IOBCR and Dr. Snell is entering his third term as a member. 

A workshop held prior to the conference was organized by Dr. Snell, Dr. Jose Gavira, and Dr. Christian Biertumpfel.  It was attended by 72 students and 25 instructors.  Talks and practicals were given by Dr. Snell and Dr. Martin Caffery, as well as a talk by Dr. Henry Chapman.  Two of the Center’s students, Jesse Coe and Chelsie Conrad, had the opportunity to connect with other international students and present posters to an international audience at the main meeting.

BioXFEL is making a significant impact on education, training, outreach, and leadership within the scientific community at an international level.
