Washington State University and the Department of Chemistry welcome you to the 2016 Northwest Crystallography Workshop in Pullman, Washington.

The biennial workshop has been held at differing locations in the Pacific Northwest since 1981, and it is a great way for regional researchers who are interested in both the utilization of macromolecular crystallography and the development of new methods to meet.

Priority for speaking slots will be given to students and post-docs who focus on how their results were achieved and the role structure played in the success of their work.
