DC Region Protein & Biotech User Meeting
Join us November 1st at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel
Wyatt's regional user meetings are a great opportunity to meet and interact with other scientists who utilize Wyatt light scattering instruments. Learn how your colleagues approach biophysical characterization, pick up some tips and tricks on method development, and spend some quality time with Wyatt staff.
Details:Date: November 1, 2016
Time: 8:30 AM
Location: Bethesda North Marriott Hotel
5701 Marinelli Rd
North Bethesda, MD 20852
- Andrew Stephen, Leidos Biomedical Research, Inc.
"Characterization of Protein and Protein-Membrane Interactions Using Light Scattering Techniques. "
- Jai Pathak, National Institutes of Health
"Does DLS-measured Diffusion Interaction Parameter kD “Predict” Formulation Viscosity?"
- Ed Eisenstein, University of Maryland
"Engineering and Analyzing Dimer Variants of Innate Immune Receptors to Enhance Plant Defense Against Pathogens"
In addition to guest speakers, this meeting will feature 'how-to' sessions presented by Wyatt scientists, moderated application reviews, poster sessions, and round table discussions covering topics such as:
- Biophysical characterization
- Formulation and stability
- Aggregates large and small
- Biomolecular interactions
- High-throughput DLS
- Electrophoretic mobility
Who should attend:
- Active users of Wyatt light scattering instruments working in biophysical characterization, protein formulation, biomolecular interactions and related fields
- Wyatt users in the biopharma or biotech industries, as well as academic customers seeking to engage with regional colleagues around similar analytical challenges
Cost is $100. Continential breakfast and lunch are provided. Open LSU credits may be applied.
50% off registration for presenting a poster! Indicate title and authors when registering. Only one registration discount per poster.
