Daniela Stock Daniela Stock is an NHMRC Senior Research Fellow and heads the Structural Biology Program at The Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute in Sydney. She received a degree in mineralogy and crystallography from the Free University of Berlin in 1992 followed by a PhD in Structural Biology at the Max-Planck Institute in Munich (Kekulé Fellowship with Robert Huber solving 20S proteasome structures) in 1996 and postdoctoral work at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK (EMBO Fellowship with John Walker studying ATP synthase structures). From 2000 she led an independent group at the MRC LMB studying molecular machines and moved to Australia in 2006 to start up Structural Biology at the VCCRI. Her lab is interested in structure determination of membrane protein complexes and in method development to facilitate their structure determination. Abstract

Bruce Ravel

Bruce Ravel is a physicist in the Synchrotron Methods Group of the Materials Measurement Laboratory at the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).  For the last several years, he has run beamline X23A2, an XAS beamline at the National Synchrotron Light Source.  NIST is building beamlines at the newly operational National Synchrotron Light Source II, including a new beamline for XAS and XRD. Bruce is known in the XAS community as the co-author of a widely-used package of software for XAS data processing and analysis and for XAS training courses at synchrotron and universities around the world. Abstract
