Hsp90 webinars


Proposed by the organizers and advisory committee of the meeting series on the “Hsp90 chaperone machine”. Online seminars by zoom are held roughly once a month on a weekday at 6 pm CEST (Geneva-Munich)/9 am PST (apologies to our Hsp90 friends in places like the Far East/Australia). Talks will be regular full seminars (~45 minutes) with the possibility to ask questions after the presentation.

The webinars are free, but advanced registration for the webinar series is required to obtain further information. Email reminders and links to register (à la carte) for the individual webinars will be sent to those who signed up.

The detailed program is listed here for the next few months (stay tuned for updates and extensions).

I watch my chaperon’s face,
And see the dear old features take
A new and tender grace
