We have been made aware of a convincing email scam that is focusing on our Programme and Workshop participants. Participants may receive an email from a firm called Expo Hotel Services (ehotelservices.org) to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes. This might include a request to provide them with credit card information.
Please note, INI will never ask for your card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store https://onlinesales.admin.cam.ac.uk/.
If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.
Diagrams of proteins
On the left-hand side is a conventional diagram, as widely used in molecular biology, of adenylate kinase, where the chain of amino acids is drawn by loops, with cylinders for the alpha helices. On the right-hand side is a diagram of a simple, `physicists's' model of a protein, where the protein is taken to be cubic and where the differences in binding strengths of the different faces are denoted by different colours.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together biologists and physicists working on protein-protein interactions, including aggregation and crystallisation.
Most of the dry mass of cells is protein, and proteins do most of the `work' in cells. Understanding their function is therefore essential to understand cells. The function of globular proteins requires specific and often very strong interactions, e.g. for recognition, in a complex mixture of thousands of other proteins. The proteins must also fold, be soluble, and avoid binding to other proteins, DNA, etc.
The workshop will bring together scientists from the physical and biological sciences to study how this feat is accomplished. Topics will include protein crystallisation and aggregation, protein interaction networks, macromolecular crowding, and related issues.
It will include a poster session where participants may present and discuss their work with scientist from theoretical physicists to structural biologists.

INI is a creative collaborative space which is occupied by up to fifty-five mathematical scientists at any one time (and many more when there is a workshop). Some of them may not have met before and others may not realise the relevance of other research to their own work.
INI is especially important as a forum where early-career researchers meet senior colleagues and form networks that last a lifetime.
Here you can learn about all activities past, present and future, watch live seminars and submit your own proposals for research programmes.
Within this section of the website you should find all the information required to arrange and plan your visit to the Institute. If you have any further questions, or are unable to find the information you require, please get in touch with the relevant staff member or our Reception team via our contact pages.
INI and its programme participants produce a range of publications to communicate information about activities and events, publish research outcomes, and document case studies which are written for a non-technical audience. You will find access to them all in this section.
The Isaac Newton Institute aims to maximise the benefit of its scientific programmes to the UK mathematical science community in a variety of ways.
Whether spreading research opportunities through its network of correspondents, offering summer schools to early career researchers, or hosting public-facing lectures through events such as the Cambridge Festival, there is always a great deal of activity to catch up on.
Find out about all of these endeavours in this section of the site.
There are various ways to keep up-to-date with current events and happenings at the Isaac Newton Institute. As detailed via the menu links within this section, our output covers social media streams, news articles, a regular podcast series, an online newsletter, and more detailed documents produced throughout the year.
“A world famous place for research in the mathematical sciences with a reputation for efficient management and a warm welcome for visitors”
The Isaac Newton Institute is a national and international visitor research institute. It runs research programmes on selected themes in mathematics and the mathematical sciences with applications over a wide range of science and technology. It attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and overseas to interact in research over an extended period.
INI has a vital national role, building on many strengths that already exist in UK universities, aiming to generate a new vitality through stimulating and nurturing research throughout the country.During each scientific programme new collaborations are made and ideas and expertise are exchanged and catalysed through lectures, seminars and informal interaction, which the INI building has been designed specifically to encourage.
For INI’s knowledge exchange arm, please see the Newton Gateway to Mathematics.
The Institute depends upon donations, as well as research grants, to support the world class research undertaken by participants in its programmes.
Fundraising activities are supported by a Development Board comprising leading figures in academia, industry and commerce.
Visit this section to learn more about how you could play a part in supporting INI’s groundbreaking research.
In this section you can find contact information, staff lists, maps and details of how to find INI’s main building in Cambridge.
Our administrative staff can help you with any queries regarding a prospective or planned visit. If you would like to discuss a proposed a research programme or other event, our senior management team will be happy to help.
