The MedInProt Protein Science Research Synergy Program (MedInProt) is a unique niche initiative in Hungary which aims to:

  • link different protein science disciplines
  • organize and strengthen their network
  • achieve competitive collaboration
  • catalyze synergy among specialities
  • support recognized researchers' co-operation

The objective of the program, which is financed by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, is to foster cooperation among a number of universities: the Eötvös Loránd University, the Budapest University of Technology and Economy, the Semmelweis University and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences Research Center for Natural Sciences. 20th May 2014 marked the inaugural conference of the MedInProt Program, whose president is Dr András Perczel.

The first phase of the program (2014 - 2015) was concerned with research into the fields of protein science. We will support some researcher to buy small and medium-sized equipment, and will finance them a measure of computer time.

MedInProt's remit includes the organisation and support of conferences and courses and the establishment of an MSc program in English. In addition, the program will be involved in setting up a troubleshooting hotline, and the purchase and translation of books relating to the field of protein science.

10:45 Cryo-EM in Biology by Emanuel Katzmann PhD

Cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) has taken enormous flight in recent years and has gained an enormous momentum resulting in the award for the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Atomic level structural analysis of viruses and proteins derived by cryo-EM requires high stability hardware and software. JEOL proudly announces its latest offering in cryo-TEMs to facilitate this development in cryo-EM.

11:40 Cryo-EM in Material Science by Guillaume Brunetti PhD

The development and subsequent application of new materials depends on a fundamental understanding of their structure and properties, and the bonding between atoms. Microstructural information and surface/bulk chemical analyses are readily obtained from these instruments with absolutely state-of-the-art results.
