We are pleased to invite you to participate in an engaging workshop “Advances in Protein Design: From Therapeutic Proteins to Synthetic Biology”. This meeting will bring together leading experts in protein design to discuss synergistic combinations of computational methodology and experimental directed evolution, and their applications in synthetic biology, materials science, bioelectronics, biotechnology, food technology, vaccine development, and drug design. Please join us for a four days event in the scenic Hula Valley in northern Israel. We’d be happy to accept your contribution for poster presentation. Oral presentations will be selected from abstracts. Please submit your abstract here.

We are looking forward to meeting you
