ACA Invites Media to Structural Science Meeting in Denver, July 7-12

07/07/2024 - 12/07/2024 American Institute of Physics (AIP)
Location: Denver
Address Denver Marriott Tech Center

DENVER, July 2, 2024 - The 74th Annual Meeting of the American Crystallographic Association will take place July 7-12 at the Denver Marriott Tech Center. From developing new drugs, to engineering novel materials for electronics, to guiding unprecedented vaccines and biological insights, ACA2024 will highlight the golden future for structural science and bring together a diverse community of experts from around the world to share scientific discoveries and advancements that impact economies, health care, and everyday understanding of the natural world.

Technical program:

Credentialed and professional freelance journalists are invited to register to attend in-person sessions at no cost. Contact to register. The AIP media team can also help reporters set up interviews and obtain images or background information.

ACA is thrilled to have Professor Catherine Drennan from MIT as the highly acclaimed keynote speaker of ACA2024. Drennan is eminent for her outstanding contributions to structural biology, which include how metals serve as cofactors in biochemical reactions — including those that can be harnessed to reduce carbon levels driving climate change and remediate environmental pollution. She will be sharing her vision for using structural science to illuminate the machinery of life in action for diverse audiences.

Additionally, exhibit hall showcases of the latest technologies and products from ACA’s industry partners will offer a unique opportunity to see firsthand the tools that are shaping the future of the structural sciences such as crystallography and cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM).

All attendees are welcome to join in on a diverse array of workshops at ACA2024. These interactive workshops have been curated to cater for both novice and seasoned structural science, offering all participants hands-on opportunities and insightful conversations led by experts.

For well over a decade, in my capacity as a researcher, broadcaster, and producer, I have relied heavily on Alphagalileo.
All of my work trips have been planned around stories that I've found on this site.
The under embargo section allows us to plan ahead and the news releases enable us to find key experts.
Going through the tailored daily updates is the best way to start the day. It's such a critical service for me and many of my colleagues.
Koula Bouloukos, Senior manager, Editorial & Production Underknown
We have used AlphaGalileo since its foundation but frankly we need it more than ever now to ensure our research news is heard across Europe, Asia and North America. As one of the UK’s leading research universities we want to continue to work with other outstanding researchers in Europe. AlphaGalileo helps us to continue to bring our research story to them and the rest of the world.
Peter Dunn, Director of Press and Media Relations at the University of Warwick
AlphaGalileo has helped us more than double our reach at SciDev.Net. The service has enabled our journalists around the world to reach the mainstream media with articles about the impact of science on people in low- and middle-income countries, leading to big increases in the number of SciDev.Net articles that have been republished.
