Enzymology Symposium

Maarten Egmond

On the occasion of the retirement of prof.dr. Maarten Egmond, after more than 50 years of research in Enzymology, we organize this one-day symposium and share current understanding of structure-function relationships of enzymes.

Date: Thursday 6 October 2022
Location: Utrecht Science Park - David de Wied Building - Room M2.01

Free of charge
Registration is required and is open on invitation by Maarten.

About the symposium: Current understanding of structure-function relationships of enzymes will be shared and highlighted by 10 experts in the area of Enzymology.
