New Focus Group Proposal: Protein Purification, Storage, and Transportation

We are happy to announce that there is interest in forming a new AAPS Protein Purification, Storage, and Transportation focus group (PPSTFG). PPSTFG aims to establish a forum where fundamental scientists and practitioners in the field can freely exchange ideas and share their practical experience. In addition, PPSTFG will serve as a magnet to support the continual education of scientists working in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry.
