Organizer: Dr. Tommi Kajander. Email: firstname.lastname at helsinki.fi.


The Structural Biology and Biophysics (SBB) Molecules Club has been held monthly (since Autumn 2016), normally on Tuesdays 9.15-10 am, and feature the talks from Viikki campus research groups on molecular biosciences and structural biology and biophysics, as well as from invited guest speakers. The club is held in Biocenter 3 3rd floor, seminar room 3401 (unless otherwise specified). Now also the INSTRUCT-ERIC webinars are included for the students to obtain credits.

The meetings are open to all. Credits will be available for students. Further inquiries on obtaining credit units should be directed to your doctoral school (update: 1 ECTS can be obtained from 20 lectures or from a presentation in the series, 2 ECTS maximum per seminar series as per instructions from ILS). If you participate to Instruct-ERIC webinars, please remember to use your full name when participating, and ask for a proof of participation from the organizer or discuss with Tommi how to demonstrate your participation (describe major points of each presentation (e.g. half a page or short summary) as the prefered way).

INSTRUCT webinars: https://instruct-eric.eu/content/instructeric-webinar-series-structure-meets-function upcoming dates: 18.9.2020, 13.10.2020 ...  (more information later, contact Hanna Oksanen/Tommi Kajander). Please check the link for updates!

NOTE: INSTRUCT webinars are also recorded and are available on the INSTRUCT web page and can be watched any time - to get credits for these provide 0.5-1 page summary on each seminar talk.

SPRING 2021

The seminars will be held remotely via Zoom for the time being (UH covid19 instructions). The link will be sent before the first seminar. Please remember to use your full name when participating, and send your student number to Tommi Kajander.
