Research-used antibodies continue to be important tools for detection, analysis and characterization of proteins. As reagents, and used in combination with technological platforms, antibodies enable researchers to explore the human body and understand how building-blocks like proteins are produced, distributed and diminished, as well as monitor alteration in time, space and during disease development.

Although many antibodies are available the uniqueness and the performance of these reagents is constantly questioned and remains one of the major challenges in proteomics research...Read more

The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) and the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) jointly organize the first international conference on cell biology of brain. The ASCB/EMBO meeting takes place in Philadelphia on the 2-4 of December 2017.

The conference brings together a program covering presentations from molecular structure and function analysis to signalling pathways, immunity and cellular interplay in organoids.

At the meeting, Dr. Emma Lundberg presents "What is an atlas and why is it important to build?" in a subgroup aiming to discuss the creation of a multiscale, multidimensional Human Cell Atlas...Read more
