The Sydney Protein Group

The Sydney Protein Group is made up of protein scientists and students from academia, hospitals and industry.

We meet regularly to hear updates from local and overseas speakers on the latest developments in protein science and related fields.

Scholarships and prizes are also provided to enable young scientists to attend key protein related meetings in Australia.

East Coast Protein Meeting 2019

The biennial East Coast Protein Meeting was held at the Opal Cove Resort in Coffs Harbour organised by the Queensland Protein Group (QPG). This conference prides itself in providing an excellent opportunity for junior protein scientists to present their work; with a high ratio of oral presentations by graduate students and postdocs to traditional presentations by senior scientists. The atmosphere is generally relaxed and informal. Topics included proteomics, emerging techniques, protein structure analysis, interactions and functional studies. A flyer is still available here.
