This friday, I attended the Symposium on Neuroproteomics organised at the University of Gent (B). Apart from Deborah Dumont‘s excellent talk, lectures were almost only focused on oxydative stress, neurological diseases and gel-free proteomics (like 2D-LC). One speaker even seemed to talk only to his computer or his presentation. So, it was not very interesting for me (finishing my thesis based on gel proteomics). The organisation was very “basic” and we even didn’t have any free pen + paper (fortunately, I took two pens and a notebook).
