FASEB announces 2014 Science Research Conference: Protein Folding in the Cell
Date:1/22/2014

Bethesda, MD This FASEB Science Research Conference brings together a diverse group of scientists who seek to define how the conformations of cellular proteins are achieved and maintained, and what happens in the cell when aberrant protein conformations arise.

Specific sessions will highlight current progress in defining common protein folding pathways, the mechanisms of action of molecular chaperones, pathways that lead to protein aggregation, coordination between and evolution of protein folding networks, protein degradation pathways, organelle and cytoplasmic stress responses, and the consequences of defects in protein folding on organismal health, aging, and development.

Meeting presentations emphasize the use of cutting-edge techniques drawn from diverse fields, including biochemistry, biophysics, computer science, genetics, cell biology, and imaging technologies. Because a growing number of diseases are linked to alterations in the folding of specific proteins, there is a strong emphasis on the impact of the misfolded conformations of these proteins in human health, aging, and disease.

In addition to talks from known leaders in this field, ample time is set aside for formal and informal scientific discussions and for highly interactive poster sessions. Moreover, approximately one-third of all talks will be selected from submitted abstracts. Career and special emphasis roundtable discussions for younger scientists further facilitate interactions amongst scientists at every stage of their career.
