The 25th International Analytical Ultracentrifugation (AUC) Workshops and Symposium (AUC2022) took place at the University of Lethbridge in Lethbridge, Canada, in July 2022. In total, 104 attendees (Attendance Profile: 104 attendees, 69 in-person, 35 remote. Brazil 1, Canada 24, China 1, Czech Republic 2, Finland 1, France 3, Germany 22, India 3, Italy 1, Japan 4, Spain 1, Switzerland 3, Taiwan 1, United Kingdom 5, United States 32) participated in the event and presented the latest advances in the field. While the primary focus of the conference was to showcase the applications of AUC in chemical, life sciences, and nanoparticle disciplines, several presentations also integrated complementary methods, such as isothermal titration calorimetry, microscale thermophoresis, light scattering (static and dynamic), small-angle X-ray scattering, X-ray crystallography, and cryo-electron microscopy. Additionally, the delegates gained valuable hands-on experience from 20 workshops covering a broad range of applications, experimental designs and systems, and the latest software innovations in solution biophysics. The AUC2022 special volume highlights the sustained innovation, utility and relevance of AUC and related solution biophysical methods across various disciplines, including biochemistry, structural biology, synthetic polymer chemistry, carbohydrate chemistry, protein and nucleic acid characterization, nano-science, and macromolecular interactions.
