***The Summer School is being held at SSRL on the Stanford Linear Accelerator campus (map). There is construction taking place which will necessitate going around the site to access the ROB where the program takes place Monday and Tuesday. ***

Space is limited, and interested participants are encouraged to submit an application early. The deadline to submit applications was August 1, 2005.
The fee for the 2005 Structural Molecular Biology Summer School is $150, for 4 days of lectures and practical rotations. Materials for lessons and practical sessions, lunches and refreshments during breaks are included. The Monday evening workshop dinner is not included and will cost an additional $25. Once applicants have been accepted the fee payment page will be available.
Participants were notified as to whether their application was accepted. Detailed registration and payment information had been provided. Lodging can be arranged at the SLAC Guest House: at http://www.stanford.edu/dept/hds/SLAC/reservations.html Please make reservations early as the workshop cannot block rooms and availability is therefore not guaranteed.
