Welcome to

Our Event

Computational protein design and experimental protein engineering are needed to accelerate the process of biotherapeutic design. Industrial meetings miss addressing these aspects of the academic labs. To bridge this gap, we initiated the meeting on Protein Design and Engineering and assembled a panel of world-class scientists. MarketsandMarkets is coming up with the Protein Design & Engineering Conference to be held in Frankfurt, Germany on 8th & 9th October 2018. We invite to join us to experience the live case studies and discussions from the experts of industry and institutes across the globe.
