Dear Colleagues, 

You are invited to join the 13th International Conference on Protein Stabilization which will be held on 07 – 09 October 2021 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

ProtStab’2021 will be organized by the University of Food Technologies, Gebze Technical University & The Stephan Angeloff Institute of Microbiology (Bulgarian Academy of Sciences) with significant contribution of European Society of Applied Biocatalysis (ESAB).

These series of meetings have been initiated in 1992 in Maastricht, The Netherlands, and since then evolved to a true European event organized biennially. The success of the previous ProtStab meetings held in various European countries is a confirmation of the growing significance and interest in protein stabilization.

The multidisciplinary topic of this conference attracts the participation of a large scientific community & students as well as provides an excellent opportunity for networking between the academic and industrial sectors involved in biotechnology research and development.  Therefore we encourage every participant to be active and use this occasion to exchange knowledge, ideas and to build collaborations.

After peer review process, accepted abstracts of ProtStab2021 will be published in the special issues of  two journals, The Protein Journal (Springer) and Food Science and Applied Biotechnology (FSAB) as Full-length original research papers; Short communications; Review articles.

The conference will take place at the University of Food Technologies in Plovdiv, located centrally in the city. The famous and the oldest in Europe, city of Plovdiv lies in the heart of South Europe and, due to its abundance of cultural attractions and rich historic architecture, recently is one of the most popular European tourist destinations.

ProtStab’2021 will cover all important aspects of protein chemistry, biochemistry and application as well as advanced biotechnologies in the field. The main scope of the symposium is to promote the exchange of information among academic and industrial researchers regarding technologies utilizing proteins to produce useful products and services.
