2nd COMSTECH Innovation Lab on Classical Protein Chemistry; Hybrid Event

INVITATION
It gives me an immense pleasure to invite you to “2nd COMSTECH Innovation Lab on Classical Protein Chemistry”, to be held at the HEJ Research Institute of Chemistry, in collaboration with COMSTECH Secretariat, Islamabadand Sindh Innovation Research and Education Network (SIREN), during May 17-19,2022. This event will be in hybrid mode.

Proteins are the functional macromolecules responsible for catalyzing the biochemical reactions that sustain life. Therefore, protein chemistry is an area of major importance in modern biochemistry. Due to the proven significance of protein science in medicine, agriculture, pharmacy, and other bio-sciences, it is necessary to initiate comprehensive programs to develop expertise and to train human resources in this field.

This innovation lab on protein science and technology will include a series of lectures on different aspects of protein purification and structural analysis. Hands-on training on different techniques in protein chemistry will also be provided. Lectures and practical training will be focused on the latest approaches for the protein functional, and structural analyses.

The participants of the innovation lab event will learn the theoretical and practical aspects of key protein chemistry techniques, including High Performance Liquid Chromatography, Fast Protein Liquid Chromatography, Electrophoresis, Protein Sequencing, Protein Mass Spectroscopy, etc.

AIMS AND SCOPE

  • Understanding the structures and functions of proteins is fundamental in biological and biomedical sciences as they have the central role in all cellular activities.
  • Protein chemistry deals with the participation of proteins, investigating protein structure-function relationship, and engineering proteins.
  • Protein chemistry contributes in many areas of biotechnology, involving recombinant DNA technology, analytical chemistry, clinical chemistry, medicinal chemistry, and protein therapeutics.

This hybrid event will provide an introduction to the methods and tools used in modern protein chemistry. It is designed for attendees who have fundamental knowledge of biology. Topics include the isolation and estimation of protein, protein purification techniques, including gel filtration, ion exchange chromatography, high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and classical and modern sequencing techniques. Hands-on exercises on these techniques will be provided during the event.

TARGETED PARTICIPANTS
This hybrid innovation lab is designed for attendees of life sciences background, with fundamental knowledge of biochemistry and molecular biology. Participation is open for researchers from academia, R&D institutions, OIC members, and industries.
