Welcome to the SMALP Community
We offer meetings and resources 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.
Our interactive meetings feature talks by leading experts, aspiring students and young scientists who are focused on membrane protein structural biology, proteomics, target discovery and biophysical analysis of bilayers and amphipathic polymers.
The intended audience includes industry and academic researchers including students and postdocs. Participants are invited to a practical workshop and round table discussion of how to use the SMALP system.
Join us for our next SMALP Conference in Berkeley on March 24, 2017 as we discuss how to produce, share and optimize SMA polymer and lipid particles for structure-function analysis of membrane discs and protein targets.
