Welcome to the SMALP Community

We offer polymers and methods to support the growing community of scientists and companies interested in the preparation and analysis of membrane discs formed by polymers including styrene maleic acid for biological research and drug discovery applications.

For FREE XIRAN SMA polymer samples please contact us.

We bring together academic and industry experts, postdocs and students who are intereseted in membrane protein structural biology, lipidomics, proteomics, target discovery and biophysical analysis of bilayers and amphipathic polymers.

The SMALP community includes industry and academic researchers including students and postdocs. All are invited to join in our annual conference, workshop and discussion of how to use and develop the SMALP system.

The next annual SMALP Conference will be held at the Banff Conference Centre in Alberta on April 11, 2018. Speakers include Jana Broecker, Sandro Keller, Jasmina Radoicic, Ayyalusamy Ramamoorthy, Bert Klumperman, Barry Bruce, Bob Gennis, Russell Bishop and Tim Dafforn. The Membrane Proteins in Health and Disease conference follows until April 15.
