Protein engineering II: from new molecules to new processes

15—17 July 2019

University of York, UK

A Biochemical Society Scientific Meeting


Abstract deadline: 15 May 2019.

Abstract submission is now open


Earlybird registration deadline: 15 May 2019.

Registration is now open


The ability to engineer proteins to tackle new challenges has had a transformational effect across the biological and physical sciences, in both industrial and academic settings. The rate at which new methods are being developed shows no sign of slowing. This timely meeting will cover recent developments in the engineering of proteins. Themes include new methods such as computational design, high throughput screening, and genetic code expansion, targets such as new biotherapeutics, scaffolds and catalysts, and the applications to which these are being applied, including diagnostics and sensing, nanotechnology, and synthetic biology. As such this will be an interdisciplinary meeting that will demonstrate the state-of-the-art of the field, and will bring together a diverse set of researchers, making this an ideal forum for the exchange of new ideas.



Oral communication slots are available at this meeting. All attendees, particularly researchers in the early stages of their career, are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration as an oral communication.


Programme Coordinators:

Rivka Isaacson, King's College London

Andrew Thomson, University of Glasgow

Dafydd Jones, Cardiff University

Paul Ko Ferrigno, Metalinear



Student Bursaries are available for this meeting.
