A Practical Approach to Microcalorimetry - Introduction to Characterizing Binding via ITC

This is a recorded version of a past event. Please sign in to view this presentation.


Episode 1 of our Practical Approach to Microcalorimetry Webinar Series introduces a user to the basic theory of isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) and experimental design. It also addresses how a user can interpret the thermodynamic values associated with fitting the data. Throughout this webinar, users will learn:

  • The Basics of ITC
  • Advantages of ITC
  • Tips for Getting Started
  • What can ITC do for you?

About the Speaker

Colette Quinn received her BA degree in chemistry from Carroll College in Helena, MT. She then began graduate research at Dartmouth College studying toxic metal remediation and essential metal regulation under a Superfund program through the NIEHS, a division of the NIH. The majority of her work was completed using an isothermal titration calorimeter (ITC), which was complimented by a variety of other biophysical techniques. While pursuing her own research, she has also performed ITC contract work for a pharmaceutical company. Shortly after obtaining her Ph.D. in chemistry in 2009, Colette joined TA Instruments as an applications scientist.
