Conference to discuss nanoparticle technologies
The two-day Nanoparticles Research Conference will take place at the Rose Bowl at Leeds Beckett University’s City Campus on Tuesday 27 and Wednesday 28 June. One hundred delegates from across the world are expected to attend the event, which will bring together researchers from academia and industry with an interest in different methodologies and who are united in the goal of clarifying the structures and functions of membrane proteins.
International speakers at the conference include Professors Steve Silgar, Jean Luc Popot, Tim Dafforn, Sandro Keller, Bonnie Wallace and Tony Watts.
Dr Vincent Postis, Senior Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University’s School of Clinical and Applied Sciences and organiser of the conference, said: “Membrane proteins represent the vast majority of drug targets for pharmaceutical companies. Elucidating the structure of membrane proteins involved in infection by pathogens is crucial and essential for biomedical advances. This conference will cover the current methodology involved in achieving this aim.”
