UP, Academia Sinica host free bilateral workshop on protein engineering, drug discovery studies

| Written by UP Media and Public Relations Office



Increasing the technical proficiency of our young scientists and graduate students benefits our University’s research efforts in drug discovery. Local opportunities to learn about current experimental techniques and methods relating to protein expression, purification, and characterization are lacking and often limited to small research laboratories.

The AS-Institute of Biological Chemistry (IBC) have established and distinguished research scientists , who have contributed significantly to the field of structural biology. Through extension work, IBC have conducted workshops in Taiwan to train current and future protein biochemists.

The workshop aims to bring the IBC’s workshops to UP. It is envisioned to improve the skills and knowledge of UP researchers in current methodologies in protein research. It will also provide the venue for scientific interactions/matching exercises between the two universities, which will initiate collaborative projects/exchanges and other future plans/activities.
