Requests are now being accepted through the RosettaCON website for invitations for the limited openings for RosettaCON2015 for members of the pharmaceutical, biotech, and related industries.
RosettaCon is an invitation-only conference at the Sleeping Lady Mountain Retreat in Washington’s Cascade Mountains, where Rosetta Commons member laboratories share the latest experimental and computational research breakthroughs in protein and macromolecular engineering and structure prediction. The Commons grew out of David Baker’s laboratory at the University of Washington and is now a consortium of twenty-four international laboratories. Justin Siegel of the University of California at Davis and Frank DiMaio of the University of Washington organize this year’s conference. We are delighted to have Bill DeGrado of the University of California at San Francisco, Roberto Chica of the University of Ottowa, Lillian Chong of the University of Pittsburgh, and Gaël McGill of Digizyme and Harvard Medical School as confirmed invited guest speakers.
In addition to showcasing cutting edge research, there will be an industry-focused session for fostering collaborations and exploring the exchange of ideas, people and resources. We invite you to participate in this session through presentations, flip charts, and breakout discussions. We hope to expand on the growing number of industry-Rosetta Commons collaborations, such as:
- Jeffrey Gray lab – AxioMx collaboration deciphering the specificity of antibodies binding phosporylated peptides
- Jens Meiler lab – Eli Lilly collaboration developing methods for drug design
- Tanja Kortemme lab –DSM collaboration developing ROSETTA applications to re-design enzyme substrate specificity
Hands-on Rosetta tutorial sessions may be offered for industry attendees interested in learning to use ROSETTA.
After the conference, hikes, climbs, and backing trips are organized by conference attendees on the most scenic trails and stellar climbs in all of Washington State.
