On 23 May a group of participants in the Protein Production and Purification Partnership in Europe (P4EU) annual meeting, now in its 19th year, visited Elettra.
The event was organised in Trieste at Area Science Park by Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste - the first Italian member to join the network - in collaboration with ICGEB and under the patronage of Area Science Park. The theme of this one was cutting-edge technologies for protein production.
It was attended by more than 100 researchers from leading laboratories as well as international experts in this important scientific and experimental field.

During the two days, they discussed state-of-the-art methods for producing multi-protein systems that are complex and difficult to obtain, and are essential for studying the molecular mechanisms of the cell using cryo-microscopy. They also talked about proteins produced in plants or probiotic lactobacilli that are of growing interest from a sustainability and wellness perspective.
The group visited the NanoInnovationlab the Elettra Experimental Room and the Structural Biology Laboratory where they were able to explore practical aspects of the research carried out at the centre.
P4EU is an international professional network uniting more than 200 experts in biotechnology related to the various aspects of protein production and characterisation, whose aim is to foster the exchange of information, technologies and state-of-the-art processes.
