12th Conference on Protein Stabilization (ProtStab 2018)

You are invited to join to the 12th International Conference on Protein Stabilization, which will be held on 16-18 May 2018, in Vilnius, at Life Sciences Center at Vilnius University. ProStab2018 will be organized by Lithuanian Biotechnology Association (LBTA) and Vilnius University (VU) with significant contribution of European Section of Applied Biocatalysis (ESAB) of the European Federation of Biotechnology (EFB).


This series of meetings has been initiated in 1992 in Maastricht, The Netherlands, and since then evolved to a true European event organized biennially. The success of the previous ProtStab meetings held in various European countries is a confirmation of the growing significance and interest in protein stabilization.

The Scientific Programme will be available after 15 March 2018. 
The preliminary Timetable for the conference will be available soon.


More information can be found on the website.
