Meeting of Working Group 5: MS in Biopharma
Wednesday 13th July, Birkbeck College, London
The goal of this working group meeting is to discuss what is the role of structural proteomics methods in a Biopharma context (discovery/quality control), what are the current needs and/or bottlenecks? and whether there is a need for new methods / instrumentation to be developed. There will be a particular focus on discussion of potential solutions, as well as developing an EU-based framework for on-going collaborative work.
The meeting will take place in round-table format, with four key topics to be considered in depth. Each topic will be kick-started by a 15 minute presentation by an invited speaker, who will then, together with a designated chair, lead the ensuing discussion.
