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

Please see the meeting program and register via the following link: www.nmi.de/rppa2016
The late-breaking abstract deadline is September 1st, 2016.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
