26 Jul 2011

Wyatt Technology Corporation today announced its 22nd Annual International Light Scattering Colloquium (ILSC) covering the latest instrumentation and application developments in light scattering. Join Wyatt for the Colloquium from Monday 31st October to Tuesday 1st November at the Four Seasons Biltmore Resort, Santa Barbara, California.

This event will host a list of high-profile plenary speakers and light scattering instrument users. To complement the 22nd annual ILSC, Wyatt Technology will also be hosting an Eclipse Field Flow Fractionation (FFF)-MALS Focus Meeting on November 2, 2011.

The ILSC has become a world-leading event for all light scattering technology professionals. The annual meeting provides a platform to gather and discuss technologies, innovations and applications. This year, delegates at the Colloquium will have the opportunity to listen to an array of expert speakers presenting a range of applications all utilizing Wyatt Technology’s instrumentation.

Key speakers at this year’s ILSC will include a mix of experts from the light scattering industry, academia, and government:

Professor Ashutosh Chilkoti, Duke University
"Self-Assembly of Recombinant Stimulus Responsive Polypeptide into Nanoparticles"

Dr. Ewa Folta-Stogniew, Yale University
"Application of Light Scattering in a Core Facility Setting"

Professor Thomas Laue, University of New Hampshire
"Protein Charge and Post-Reductionist Biochemistry"
