Engineering recombinant proteins for structural and functional studies

This two-day training event will discuss strategies to engineer sufficiently pure, homogenous and high-quality recombinant proteins that are critical for subsequent structural and functional studies. The event, aimed at early career researchers will cover the latest bioinformatic tools for construct design and protein characterisation, tips and tricks for improving protein expression, purification, stability/preparation and evaluating quality with biophysical techniques. The event will be interactive with opportunities to bring proteins to analyse on some of the latest instrumentation/software and to present a poster on these topics.

Topics will include:

  • Protein Bioinformatics
  • Protein Expression
  • Protein Purification
  • Biophysical Characterisation

Invited trainers will include:

  • Elliott Stollar, University of Liverpool
  • Rivka Isaacsoon, Kings College London
  • Dominic Tisi, Astex Pharmaceuticals
  • Nicola Burguess-Brown, Exact Sciences Innovation, Oxford, UK
  • Chris Cooper, Peak Proteins
  • Mark Frost, Cytiva
  • Eleanor Williams,  Centre for Medicines Discovery (CMD), University of Oxford
  • Alejandra Fernandez-Cid, Exact Sciences Innovation, Oxford, UK
  • Rod Chalk, Centre for Medicines Discovery (CMD), University of Oxford
  • Dan Rigden, University of Liverpool
