AusBioTALK N CRIS National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy Manufacture of Recombinant Proteins and Biofuels Capability 5.5 Biotechnology Products National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) partner, CSIRO Molecular & Health Technologies, recently celebrated the 10th Anniversary of their Annual Protein Expression Workshop. The four-day event attracted over 200 participants and continued to deliver valuable networking and professional development opportunities for those directly and indirectly engaged in recombinant protein production and analysis. To celebrate the milestone in the workshop's history, the event was launched on the 4th of August with a public lecture on the topic, "Personalised cancer care -- but at what cost?" Presented by renowned scientists, Professors Richard Fox and Katherine McGrath, and chaired by CSIRO Senior Principle Research Scientist Dr Tim Adams, the event was held at the Bio21 Institute in Parkville, Victoria. The anniversary was also marked with an extended scientific program that included presentations from international speakers, a celebratory dinner, and a tour of the Monash Antibody Technology Facility (MATF), the Centre for Green Chemistry and NCRIS Protein Purification Facility, and the NCRIS Pilot-scale Protein Production Facility (currently under construction) at Clayton. The scientific program included presentations from national and international speakers on current and emerging techniques and developments within the fields of molecular biology, fermentation, purification, crystallisation and the structural analysis of protein. The workshop also included sessions aimed at promoting infrastructure capabilities available for researchers to access, such as the Australian Synchrotron, the C3 Collaborative Crystallisation Centre, and the NCRIS protein process development and GMP production facilities. Major sponsor: Victorian Government Gold sponsors: AusBiotech, Bio21 Cluster and John Morris Scientific AusBiotech is the managing agency for the Commonwealth Government's NCRIS program for Capability 5.5 Biotechnology Products -- Recombinant Proteins and Biofuels. This project offers eligible researchers engaged in recombinant protein or biofuels research access to quality facilities, advanced equipment and technical expertise at a subsidised rate.
