Workshops


There are 35 workshop participants to date!


The General Meeting of the IPS will be preceded by a series of workshops organized by seasoned scientists. The workshops will be held from 27-28 October at the Univesity of Calgary, which is located within 30 min drive from the Calgary International Airport and 150 km from the meeting site at the Banff Centre in the town of Banff.

For accommodations, while attending the workshops, we propose the Hotel Alma on Campus or BestWestern (20 min. walk). Alternatively, other hotel options can be found nearby.

After the workshops, buses or car rentals can get you to the Conference Venue (How to get there).

Important: Make sure to leave Calgary early enough to make it on time to check-in and attend the opening lecture in Banff.

Workshop descriptions

Practical Protease Kinetics

(Guy Salvesen and Christian Sommerhoff)

In this workshop, trainees will discuss and apply principles of theoretical and practical enzyme kinetics with a special focus on proteases. Topics include substrate and inhibitor kinetics, steady-state, presteady-state and transient approaches, inhibitor mechanisms, slow versus fast binding, hardware, and software. The workshop includes both seminars and wet lab experiments.

A link to download this workshop handbook will be provided to registered participants in early October 2017. No printed material will be provided.

A Beginner's Guide to Imaging Peptidases in Cells and Tissues   

(Bonnie Sloane, Pina Colarusso, and Galia Blum)

This workshop is targeted at beginners who want to learn about fluorescence microscopy and imaging peptidases in particular. To begin, the fundamentals of fluorescence microscopy will be covered through lectures, hands-on activities and small group discussions. Participants will work with wide-field fluorescence microscopes and learn how the different components in the light path work together to form an image. A brief overview of optical sectioning techniques, including confocal and multiphoton microscopy, will also be presented. The introductory session will be followed by an in-depth research seminar that will focus on procedures for imaging peptidases in two contexts: in vitro in cultures of live cells and in vivo in animal models and in patients as an aid to diagnosis and surgery. To bring the research to life, participants will also have the opportunity to acquire and visualize images of peptidase samples using different modalities, including wide-field, confocal and multiphoton microscopy.

TAILS Proteomic Substrate Discovery: Data Analysis

(Ulrich auf dem Keller, Oliver Schilling, Nestor Solis, and Chris Overall)

Important note: Participants must bring their laptop.

A link to download this workshop handbook will be provided to participants in early October 2017. No printed material will be provided.

In this workshop, you will learn how to design and interpret mass spectrometry-based degradomics experiments. Participants will be introduced to general data analysis strategies for high-throughput protease substrate discovery and get hands-on experience with various current customized software packages. With help of publicly available example datasets, you will be guided step-by-step through installation and execution of analysis pipelines and trained in interpretation of results.
