The meeting’s main themes are: 1) ER protein biogenesis, maturation, quality control, and secretion; 2) ER stress and the unfolded protein response; 3) Interconnections between ER homeostasis and other cellular processes; 4) The roles of ER stress in diverse diseases.
Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
Protein Biogenesis at the ER
ER Protein Targeting and Translocation
Protein Folding and Quality Control
Hijacking of the ER by Pathogens
ER Stress in Metabolic Disease
The UPR, Cell Fate, and Cancer
The conference covers eight sessions, four poster sessions, and career development workshops. We are delighted to have Jonathan Weissman, PhD (Whitehead Institute) present the EMBO Keynote Lecture.
