6th Midwest Single Molecule Workshop

Dear 6th Midwest Single Molecule Workshop attendees,

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the necessary decision to postpone the 6th Midwest Single Molecule Workshop until next year, 2021.

Keeping in mind the health and safety of our attendees and staff, as well as current policies on travel restrictions in several academic institutions we have decided to hold the Workshop next August. The exact dates and any other announcements will be posted on this page.

Please contact us if you have any further questions.

The 6th Midwest Single Molecule Workshop continues the tradition of previous workshops gathering the leading experts and researchers in single-molecule biophysics from across the Midwestern States and surrounding areas to share their latest research, discoveries, and ideas as well as communicate with peers involved in single molecule studies.

This two-day meeting will feature a wide variety of topics and presenters, including invited lectures, poster presentations, and short talks, and a keynote address. We hope to cover all aspects of single molecule biophysics, including experimental and theoretical approaches, and the application of these methods to single molecule studies ranging from isolated individual molecules to whole cells.

The workshop travels from place to place. This year, the meeting will take place in Omaha, NE co-organized by Y. Lyubchenko (Professor at University of Nebraska Medical Center) and A. Krasnoslobodtsev (Associate Professor at University of Nebraska Omaha) in 2021. The past five workshops, held at Washington University in St. Louis (2010), University of Michigan at Ann Arbor (2012), University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (2014), University of Iowa (2016), and Iowa State University (2018) were very popular and attracted over 100 participants.

We hope you will be able to join us to continue this great tradition at the 6th Midwest Single Molecule Workshop.

We look forward to seeing you in Omaha!
