Subject: Perspectives on Protein Engineering conferences

THE CONFERENCE
The Perspectives on Protein Engineering conferences started in Oxford in
1991 and have grown steadily in popularity as a forum for protein engineers
in universities and industry to explore the state - of - the - art in
protein engineering. In 1996 it is intended to commence an annual European
tour to draw attention to the crucial role of protein science in Europe for
interpreting and exploiting the growing wealth of information coming from
structural biology and genome research.
The fifth conference in this series will feature protein folding and
biocatalysis, two important fields of interdisciplinary research in which
European protein scientists excel. The topics covered will include:
predicting and mapping sequence to structure and function (molecular
bioinformatics), protein folds and stability, molecular
chaperones, design and modelling of enzymes, selection from molecular
repertoires, signalling cascades, therapeutic proteins and conjugates,
chiral synthesis and the biotransformation of nucleic acids in molecular
biology and therapy.

HONORARY ADVISORY BOARD
O Vandenput (Belgium), B Clarke (Denmark), D Schomburg (Germany), S
Hamodrakas (Greece), M Rico (Spain), D Moras (France), S Mayhew (Ireland), A
Fontana (Italy), G Robillard (The Netherlands), J Moura ( Portugal), T
Blundell (UK), M H=F6bling (Austria), T Teeri (Finland), A Gudmundsdottir
(Iceland), S Pettersson (Norway), G Heijne (Sweden), C Sander (EMBL)

PROGRAMME AND CALL FOR PAPERS
A feature of the last conference in this series was the large number of
scientific presentations selected from papers contributed in response to
a general Call for Papers. Although there will be lectures given by invited
leaders in protein engineering, European scientists are encouraged to submit
abstracts describing important recent advances for consideration for
inclusion in the scientific programme. There will be a poster exhibition
which will remain in place throughout the conference
and will be scheduled in the main programme. A trade exhibition and
mini-workshops on analytical protein science and structural biology will
also be featured.

SPECIAL GUEST LECTURER
Prof. T L Blundell (Director General, UK Biotechnology & Biological Sciences
Research Council)

CONFERENCE ARRANGEMENTS
France is an appropriate country to host our international conference on
protein engineering since its scientific community recognised the great
potential and economic importance of protein science at an early stage.

We hold the conference in Montpellier, located between the mountains and the
Mediterranean. This thousand year old city is home to three universities and
the Centre for Structural Biochemistry-a component of IMABIO -the major
French Initiative for biological macromolecular structure and engineering.
Our sessions will be held in Le Corum - a purpose-built congress centre
located within walking distance of a wide
variety of hotels in the city centre. Direct flights to Montpellier leave
from Barcelona, Brussels, Amsterdam, London, Milan and Rome as well as from
many internal airports.

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMME INFORMATION
The full scientific programme will be finalised later this year with both
invited and contributed scientific papers reflecting the themes of the
conference. Early submission of abstracts is encouraged. Delegates acting
quickly can opt to submit either a conference paper (contributed lecture), a
short oral communication or a poster. Abstracts will be published in the
Oxford University Press journal Protein Engineering. To follow European
activities in Protein Engineering prospective delegates are invited to point
their World Wide Web browsers to the site:
http://www.cryst.bbk.ac.uk/CEC/eupage.html. Information about the
Montpellier conference and a registration facility will also appear in this
on-line documentation.

Job Opportunity
=====================
CHIEF, MOLECULAR DIAGNOSIS, DEPARTMENT OF PATHOLOGY, ROSWELL PARK CANCER
INSTITUTE
The Chief of Molecular Diagnosis will run a clinically-oriented section in
the Department of Pathology with emphasis on assays for tumor diagnosis
and
prognosis, viral diagnosis, and other genetic tests related to neoplasic
development.  The successful candidate should be a physician, have
extensive training in molecular diagnostic techniques, preferably several
years of experience in the field, and be able to develop an active
research program to support the extensive clinical and experimental
oncology programs throughout the institute.  The molecular laboratory is
well equipped and staffed.  There is ample opportunity for collaboration
with clinical and experimental investigators.  Interested candidates
should
forward their CV and 3 references to:
                John J. Brooks, M.D., MRCPath
                Chairman, Department of Pathology
                Roswell Park Cancer Institute
                Elm and Carlton St.
                Buffalo, NY  14263

3) Change of E-mail address

Today I move to Boston, MA. I try to get Internet access as soon as
possible. In the meantime you can send E-mails to my permanent German account:

                mkh536@cks1.rz.uni-rostock.de

or to Arthur Bergen

                Bergen@amc.uva.nl
