The researchers of the Christian Doppler Laboratory gathered from November 30 to December 1 in Kundl for the 12th quarterly meeting to exchange results and make new plans. Very notably, Arthur Hinterholzer and Mario Schubert presented NMR spectra of intact, denatured Rituximab, which will enable the identification and quantification of post-translational modifications.
