TA Instruments is pleased to offer a FREE one-day microcalorimetry short course. Learn how to make the most use of your ITC and/or DSC and how they can be complimentary tools to understanding your macromolecule drug development. This includes using them as both discovery and screening tools. This practical one-day short course is geared for both experienced, and those new to the techniques of DSC and ITC. You will come away with practical knowledge on how to get the most out of your microcalorimetry instrumentation, no matter what vendor you may currently have for these techniques. Students will learn optimal measurement techniques, data reduction and interpretation, and case study applications.
The speaker, Dr. Colette Quinn, is an Applications Scientist at TA Instruments. Colette received her Ph.D degree in chemistry at Dartmouth College (Hanover, NH), focusing on toxic metal remediation and essential metal regulation. While pursuing her own research during graduate school she was also a paid consultant for a Cambridge, MA pharmaceutical company. Shortly after obtaining her degree in 2009, Colette joined TA Instruments as an applications scientist where she supports customers through training, seminars, and assaying samples ranging from energetic materials to proteins. She continues to pursue her own research as well and is currently interested in kinetics in the ITC and DSC.
