Scientific Meetings and Training Events

The Biochemical Society provides an extensive range of events, including scientific conferences, training events, outreach activities, medal lectures, and policy and education events.  This programme provides an excellent opportunity to magnify your research by submitting an abstract for an oral communication or poster presentation, and sharing your work with the wider molecular biosciences community.

Quantitative Proteomics and Data Analysis

4—5 April 2016

Queen Hotel, Chester, UK

This training day will meet two needs:


1.  It will continue the format of the previous two Training Days, and will use a mixture of lectures and small group teaching to achieve a high level of awareness of the issues and problems inherent in quantitative proteomics.


2.  It will precede the third iteration of a highly successful meeting on Quantitative Proteomics (ProteoMMX 4.0). This ensures that newcomers to the field are steeped in the jargon, and indeed, the complexity, of quantitative proteomics before they take part in a highly detailed but relaxed and friendly conference on this specific topic.

Registration for this training day is open.


Approved by the Royal Society of Biology for the purpose of CPD, this event may be counted as 36 CPD credits.
