CBMNet: Overcoming Cellular Barriers: Implications for Industrial Biotechnology

CBMNet: Overcoming Cellular Barriers: Implications for Industrial Biotechnology

6th - 7th Jul 2016 | Birmingham, UK

A joint BioProNET, CBMNet and BioCatNet meeting

On Wednesday at 11.45 Cobra’s Dr Steve Williams will present alongside Dr Neil Dixon of the University of Manchester on the ‘PeriTune’ Project: Periplasmic Export in e.coli.

It is increasingly recognised that the function of membranes in bacterial, yeast and mammalian cell factories are an important but under-appreciated parameter in optimising recombinant protein quality and yields.  Furthermore, delivery of a therapeutic protein to its target often requires that protein to cross one or more membranes. 
Three BBSRC NIBB - BioCatNet, BioProNet, and CBMNet - are hosting a two day event to address the challenges of protein secretion and targeting in Industrial Biotechnology.  Three themes form the backdrop of the meeting: Protein Trafficking in Eukaryotic Cells, Protein Export from Bacterial Cell Factories and Delivery of Therapeutic Proteins to Targets. 
The meeting will identify how UK academic and industrial strengths can be exploited to enhance application to future challenges and will combine presentations from leading academic and industrial practitioners to inform and stimulate facilitated discussions. The overall aim is to identify collaborative research projects and teams to bid for RCUK, Innovate UK and Horizon 2020 funding.

Arrange to meet with Dr Steve Williams in Bimringham using the sinple form below.

Registration is free and includes accommodation on the 6th of July. Register here.
