Next-Generation Protein Analysis and Detection (3rd edition)
A VIB Tools & Technologies conference

After two successful editions (organized in June 2015 & October 2017) featuring each time ~300 attendees, we are pleased to announce the 3rd edition that will take place in December 2019.

The ‘Next-Generation Protein Analysis and Detection’ conference will bring together top scientists from Academia and Companies with novel technologies in several sessions.

New as well as recurring topics will be discussed:

  • Analytical and Clinical Proteomics
  • Biosensing and Molecular Diagnostics
  • Recombinant Antibody Tools
  • Single Cell and Single Protein Analysis
  • Interactomics
  • Post Translational Modifications

Since 2013, our institute, VIB, has set up a series of "Tools and Technologies" meetings focused on fast-moving life sciences technology fields. Those meetings focus on the front end of innovation and bring together key innovators in selected life sciences research fields

In addition to great scientific and technology program, the conference will provide ample networking opportunities during the breaks and conference dinner.
