This conference includes presentations by researchers who are developing and studying polymer-based nanoparticles which contain lipids and proteins. Presentations will be given by researchers who are actively developing and studying polymer-based nanoparticles which contain lipids and proteins The sessions cover Synthesis and Biophysics, Membrane Protein Structural Biology, In vivo and Biological Mechanisms, and are followed by a Round Table Discussion of future opportunities and challenges. This is a non-profit event, all proceeds will be used to cover the cost of the venue, meals and meeting organization. We greatly appreciate your support, and look forward to an enjoyable and productive event. See www.smalp.net for details, call +1 780 222 6281 or email the organizers atr email@example.com.
