Biological and Pharmaceutical Complex Fluids III: Protein Self-Assembly, Rheology and Interfacial Properties Course is organized by Engineering Conferences International (ECI) and will be held from Jul 14 - 17, 2019 at Seminarhotel Schloss Hernstein, Hernstein, Lower Austria, Austria. Course Description : The focus of this conference is quite unique in that it brings together scientists in two very different industrial sectors: Biotherapeutics and Foods. The common unifying theme being the challenges and progress made in these areas for characterizing complex fluids found commonly in both the sectors, such as proteins. Biotherapeutics or biologics is rapidly emerging as the next generation of therapeutic solutions for many life-threatening diseases in the area of unmet medical needs. This sector is expected to continue its significant growth over the next decade as rapid development of recombinant proteins and peptides, along with identification of new targeting approaches, leads to augmentation or replacement of small organic molecules with therapeutic proteins. Developing stable formulations with these biological complex fluids comes with its own set of challenges as complex specific and non-specific interactions can lead to self-association, irreversible aggregate formation, and other manifestations that negatively impact physicochemical properties and delivery. This meeting, the third in this ECI series, will focus on bringing together a wide range of multi-disciplinary groups from academia and industry with a view to discussing key challenges, recent developments, key insights and future trends in understanding protein aggregation, rheology and interfacial properties with a specific focus on formulations and products encountered in the biotherapeutics and foods industrial sectors. It is expected that this will lead to significant cross-industry learning and potential new cross-industry collaborations. Course Topics : • Protein-Protein interactions • Protein Aggregation-Thermodynamics, Kinetics and Interactions • Protein Rheology and Microrheology in Bulk • Protein Structuring and Rheology at Interfaces • Impact of Surfactants and Polymers on protein-based forumulatons • New Characterization Techniquesl Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
