London - September 13 - 14th
This year the meeting is organized by Malvern Panalytical and a Scientific Committee of expert users from academia and industry with the support of ARBRE MOBIEU network.
The event will focus on broad applications, best practices, advanced data analysis and latest developments in isothermal titration and differential scanning calorimetry (ITC and DSC) as well as complementary biophysical techniques such as dynamic light scattering (DLS), multi-detection SEC and Taylor dispersion analysis.
Four scientific sessions will cover large diversity of topics from development of therapeutic proteins and profiling protein stability and volumetric properties with DSC, to monitoring enzyme kinetics under conditions mimicking cellular environment and interaction analyses with ITC involving ribosome binding to antibiotics and crude reaction screening.
Much focus will be given to assurance of data and sample quality and reliable interpretation of the results with the talks on How to Get Binding Parameters and Know Whether They Are Meaningful by Niek Buurma, Cardiff University, UK and on Quality Control of Purified Proteins, One of the Keys to Success by Bertrand Raynal, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France. We will also be presented with the results of a case study within COST action ARBRE-MOBIEU on ITC test reactions and data analysis.
Five interactive workshops on Day 1 of the meeting will offer an opportunity for learning and interaction with advanced users of biophysical techniques and Malvern Panalytical experts.
