Symposium: Protein-Folding Diseases: Models & Mechanisms
Date:7/10/2012

Registration is now open for Disease Models & Mechanisms' one-day symposium entitled Protein-Folding Diseases: Models & Mechanisms.

This one-day Symposium will focus on how misfolded proteins contribute to disease and disease processes at the cellular and whole-organism level, highlighting the diverse biological models that can be used to address this issue. It is becoming increasingly clear that protein misfolding underlies many disease states, including neurodegenerative diseases, prion diseases, type 2 diabetes, cystic fibrosis and cancer. In addition, it is thought to contribute to the normal process of aging.

The symposium is to be held on Tuesday, September 4th, 2012, at The Broad Institute, in Cambridge, MA, and is organized by Susan Lindquist (MIT) and Vivian Siegel (The Broad Institute, and Editor-in-Chief of Disease Models & Mechanisms). Lunch and refreshments will be provided
