Westmoreland West (Westin )
Description:
Protein engineering has wide application areas ranging from basic science to industrial production and disease therapy. For this session, we invite high-quality presentations that reflect the latest advances in protein engineering and applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: protein-based biosensors and actuators, protein ligand/receptor engineering, protein-based biomaterials, development of novel protein fusion partners, and novel antibody engineering.
