Industrial Biotechnology at the Cell Membrane: “Protein Secretion”
Industrial Biotechnology at the Cell Membrane is CBMNet’s end of network event. Held in Sheffield from 30 April – 2 May 2019, it focuses on four main themes associated with crossing biological membranes: Uptake, Efflux, Membrane Engineering/Chemical Toxicity and Protein Secretion.
The meeting is free for CBMNet members and there will be £50 Amazon vouchers to be won for best short talk and best poster! If you would like to be considered for the available short talk slots, then please submit an abstract when you register.
Session 4 will focus on “Protein Secretion” and features:
- Colin Robinson – University of Kent. The research in Prof Robinson’s laboratory focuses on understanding and exploiting bacterial protein export systems for the production of high value recombinant proteins.
- Chris Lennon – Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies. Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies is a Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization which supports the development and manufacture of recombinant proteins, viral vaccines and gene therapies. Dr Lennon has collaborated on a number of CBMNet-funded projects.
- Dora Tang – Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics. Dr Tang’s group aims to understand the chemical and physical processes which drive molecular organisation in lipids, polymers and proteins for synthetic biology applications.
