The Regiomeeting takes place every year the last week of September since 1987

The Regiomeeting is an annual meeting that serves to convene structural biologists from many Swiss, German, and French research laboratories. It was founded in 1987 in a collegial spirit  by Profs. Johan Jansonius (Basel), Georg Schultz (Freiburg) and Dino Moras (Strasbourg). The Regiomeeting has now grown to encompass, besides Basel, Freiburg and Strasbourg, also research teams from the entire Swiss structural biology community, from southern Germany and eastern France. Regular contributions are provided by participants from Bern, Genève, Heidelberg, Köln, Konstanz, Lausanne, Tübingen and Paul Scherrer Institute, Villigen.

At the Regiomeeting, young researchers are encouraged to discuss their results among scientists from academia and industry in an international, yet informal atmosphere, thus fostering scientific exchanges and collaborations.

The Regiomeeting is a great place for efficient exchange of the most recent scientific results and is a natural catalyst for the establishment of collaborations between the laboratories of this area of Europe. New results and approaches for macromolecular structure determination, with the potential of opening new avenues in biotechnology, pharmaceutical sciences and medicine, are presented every year at the meeting.
