The Chromatographic Society will be hosting the 4th ‘Grass Roots’ educational event in the beautiful market town of Church Stretton from the 4th to the 7th of October 2019.

The upcoming course will focus on the Understanding and application of biopharmaceutical workflows, with a focus on the chromatographic workflow applied to mAb characterisation. The course will look at the application of HILIC to glycan separations, RP-LC for the analysis of peptides, SEC to analyse for fragments and aggregates, and finally ion exchange chromatography to allow separation of charge variants. The event will be classroom based but will use real examples to demonstrate how to get the best out of a mAb separation.

Training will be led by practicing separation scientists who are also longstanding leaders in their respective fields: Paul Ferguson (AstraZeneca), Tony Taylor (Crawford Scientific), Tony Edge (Agilent), and Ken Cook (ThermoScientific). While the meeting will be primarily educational, there will also be extensive opportunities for networking, and a social programme that includes walks in the picturesque Shropshire countryside.

Given the educational nature of the event, and to increase its accessibility, the Society will provide a limited number of academic and industrial (SME) bursaries up to £250 to cover the cost of accommodation, meals, registration and a limited travel allowance for the three-day event.
