Nano-Molecular Analysis for Emerging Technologies VI - Surface Science of Biologically Important Interfaces 15

Tuesday 25 to Thursday 27 November 2014 - NPL, Teddington

Frontiers in Biomolecular Surface Measurement

Identifying and measuring biomolecules at surfaces is of major importance in many areas, for example: environmental science, cosmetics and the advancement of medical diagnosis and treatments. Each measurement technique provides a partial view of the complex nature and behaviour of biomolecules at the interfaces of medical devices, polymers and biological tissue. This meeting is focused upon developments and advances in the identification, quantification and high resolution imaging of molecules on all types of surfaces.

This meeting will combine two days of NMAET/SSBII on Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 November 2014, with excellent invited speakers; along with a third day on Thursday 27 November, comprising a BMSS ambient mass spectrometry special interest group meeting. Participants will be able to register for all three days, or just for the final BMSS special interest group day.
