SMALP network  



Banff & Lake Louise

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 in the next SMALP Conference at the Banff Conference Centre in Alberta, Canada on April 10, 2018.

We'll discuss the latest developments in polymer chemistry, methods and applications in membrane biology, biophysics and structural biology and alternatives including nanodiscs. We'll also share polymers and tips at the practical workshop on a first come, first serve basis, so do register soon.
