Francis Crick Prize Lecture 2016 given by Dr Madan Babu Mohan

If DNA is the blueprint of life, proteins are the building blocks. Research over the last century has shown that the shapes adopted by proteins determine their functions. Mutations that affect their shapes cause human diseases. However in recent decades, scientists have discovered that a large number of proteins do not adopt defined shapes. Nevertheless, these unstructured proteins perform functions that are critical for the survival of organisms. Join Dr Mohan to discover how unstructured proteins perform their functions, contribute to cellular complexity and cause human diseases including cancer and neurodegeneration. Dr Madan Babu Mohan was awarded the 2016 Francis Crick lecture for his major and widespread contributions to computational biology.

Who should attend? This is a free, public lecture aimed both at scientists within the field, early career researchers and interested members of the general public. The lecture will give an introduction to this fascinating area and a glimpse of the future capabilities that this research provides.

Booking: •Free to attend •No registration required •Doors open from 18:00 and seats are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis •British Sign Language interpretation and live subtitles are available on request. Please let the Events Team know at least two weeks prior to the event (events@royalsociety.org).
