New materials, progress toward an HIV vaccine, and more at meeting of crystallographers
Date:7/1/2013

WASHINGTON D.C., July 1, 2013 New materials and potential new drug targets are just some of the discoveries featured this month at a major scientific meeting on the structure of molecules. More information on the conference program and press releases will be disseminated in mid-July.

The Annual Meeting of the American Crystallographic Association (ACA) will be held July 20 24, 2013, at the Sheraton Waikiki Beach Hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii. Crystallography is the science devoted to exploring the arrangement of atoms in regular crystalline solids and in complicated molecules. Scientists will present research spanning medicine, genomics, material science, structural biology, and other diverse disciplines.

Preliminary meeting highlights appear below. For more information, reporters can contact Catherine Meyers (cmeyers@aip.org, 301-209-3088).

Visualizing the HIV vs. Immune System Arms Race

"Highly effective neutralizing antibodies have been isolated from about two dozen HIV-1 infected individuals.... We followed the development of a CD4-binding site antibody, CH103, in a donor from time of infection...."

Materials that Expand Under Pressure

"Negative linear compressibility (NCL) is a rare but desirable property whereby a material's crystal structure actually expands in one direction against increasing hydrostatic pressure.... In zinc(II) dicyanoaurate (I) so-called "giant" NLC is observed for the first time with the crystal structure expanding more than 10 percent over 1.8 GPa...."
