A Symposium in honour of Joe Zaccai's Career.
Our knowledge of biological macromolecules and their interactions is based on the application of physical methods, ranging from classical thermodynamics to recently developed techniques for the detection and manipulation of single molecules. The role of neutron diffraction and spectroscopy techniques in improving this knowledge has been outstanding and the potential for future developments is remarkable. The meeting "Structural Dynamics and Dynamical Structures" will focus on the future challenges for neutron techniques to answer the questions raised by molecular and cell biology. It will be a tribute to the work of Joe Zaccai who has pioneered the use of neutron diffraction and spectroscopy for the study of the structure and dynamics of biological systems, covering the range from small biomolecules to entire cells.
