RPPA2016: 6th Global Reverse Phase Protein Array Workshop

20.07.2016

Interested in signaling proteins, pathways and their role in cancer and drug profiling?
Then meet us at the 6th Global Reverse Phase Protein Array Workshop in Reutlingen/Germany, Sep 25 - 27, 2016.

Reverse Phase Protein Arrays (RPPA) is a well-established technology that allows sensitive and quantitative detection of hundreds of proteins and their post-translational modifications from low amounts of biological samples.

Driven by the desire of many researchers to “look beyond genomics”, RPPA systems are being used by a growing number of academic scientists, biomedical and pharmaceutical companies and CLIA laboratories, for comprehensive analyses of cell culture materials, pre-clinical and clinical tissue as well as fluid samples on the functional protein level.

Methodology and applications of the RPPA technology are constantly evolving. Therefore, pioneers of the technology, experienced users and researchers interested in incorporating the RPPA technology into their own research portfolio will in September gather at the 6th RPPA Global Workshop in Reutlingen, Germany, to discuss the technology’s applications for advancing precision medicine, identifying therapeutic targets, elucidating mechanisms of disease and drug action, discovering and validating biomarkers, as well as new opportunities through emerging technologies.

Free and mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge will be fostered in workshops, presentations, posters and industry showcases. As such, this event will build on the great success of the previous meetings in Houston 2011, Edinburgh 2012, Kobe 2013, Paris 2014, and Virginia 2015.

Join us at RPPA2016!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee,
Thomas Joos, Michael Pawlak, Markus Templin

The late-breaking abstract deadline is September 1st, 2016.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
