AUC 2019

We cordially invite you to AUC 2019, the 24th International Analytical Ultracentrifugation Workshop and Symposium, co-hosted by the Biomolecular Interaction Centre. 

The programme will begin with three days of workshops, followed by a three day symposium. There will be two poster sessions, a round-table discussion and exhibitor fair. 

The focus of AUC 2019 is on solution studies of biological macromolecules, interacting systems, synthetic polymers, nanoparticles and colloids. Techniques such as analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC), dynamic and static light scattering (DLS, MALLS), small angle X-ray and neutron scattering (SAXS, SANS), NMR, SPR, field flow fractionation (FFF), and calorimetry (ITC, DSC), and fluorescence techniques are featured.

Workshop Dates: 24-26 August 2019

Symposium Dates: 27-29 August 2019

Venue: Eningeering Core, University of Canterbury
