IBC gratefully acknowledges Jill Winter of Chiron Corporation for her 
assistance as a scientific advisor for this meeting.

Complimentary book to the first 50 paid, registered delegates!
Phage Display of Peptides and Proteins is an insightful step-by-step 
discussion of phage display protocols for preparing affinity reagents, 
monoclonal antibodies and evolved proteins. Both novices and experts 
will benefit from this book which outlines strategies for maximizing 
the successful application of phage display technology to one's 
research. Editors: Brian K. Kay, University of North Carolina, Jill 
Winter, Chiron Corporation, John McCafferty, Cambridge Antibody 
Technology. Complimentary copies will be given to the first 50 fully 
paid, registered delegates of this meeting. Books may be picked up by 
delegates during conference registration.
