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"
• Dr. Johannes Ottl, Novartis Pharma AG
"Light Scattering In Pharmaceutical Low Molecular Weight Drug Discovery"
• Dr. Robert Sitrin, Merck & Co. Inc.
"Size Matters-Using Modern Technology to Characterize Vaccines"
• Professor Andre Striegel, Florida State University
"7 Faces of Dr. Lao: The Many Roles of Light Scattering in Multi-Detector Polymer Separations"
• Dr. Per-Olof Wahlund, Novo Nordisk A/S-Light Scattering:
"A Useful Tool in the Biophysicist's Toolbox"
• Dr. Germán Rivas, Centro de Investigaciones Biológicas
"Quantitative Characterization of Essential Bacterial Macromolecular Complexes by Composition-Gradient Static Light Scattering Combined with Other Biophysical Techniques"
The Eclipse FFF-MALS Focus Meeting on the third day is dedicated to the exchange of experience between users of the Eclipse FFF system. The application focus will be proteins, biopolymers and liposome/virus particles. The format of the meeting will be a round-table discussion. For each session there will be a talk given by an expert in the corresponding topic as an introduction to the general discussion.
