Quantitative Proteomics Approaches to Study Host-Pathogen Relationships

Thursday, September 10, 2015, from 1 pm to 7 pm

UCSD Medical Education and Telemedicine (MET) Building, Room 141

Recently, many host-pathogen relationships have been explored using high-throughput approaches that uncover novel biology through the application of quantitative and unbiased proteomics methods. This workshop will focus on the best practices in the field for applying quantitative proteomics approaches to study host-pathogen relationships. Speakers will describe the latest and most effective methods for probing protein-protein interactions, post-translational modifications, as well as advanced approaches to add quantitative value to proteomics studies. Special attention will be placed on experimental design and bioinformatics strategies for each approach that maximize the amount of biological information that can be extracted from highly complex proteomics data.

This meeting is open to the public but seats are limited so be sure to register early.

No Show Policy

While we do not charge a fee to attend this event, these and our other events would be unsustainable unless those unable to attend cancelled their reservations no later than 2 days before the event. A no-show can limit your ability to book our events in the future. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.



The Medical Education and Telemedicine (MET) building can be found here, along with nearby parking options. Registration, coffee breaks and the reception will occur in the MET courtyard. All talks will be held in MET Room 141.
