Ubiquitin and Cellular Regulation

Conference Summary

This FASEB SRC brings together leading international investigators in the field, junior scientists, and those who have recently entered the field of protein ubiquitination. Structural, molecular, and cellular biology continue to reveal both novel and common themes in protein ubiquitination. Exciting progress and new discoveries continue to expand the basic and clinical potential of understanding Ubiquitin (Ub) and Ubiquitin-like proteins (Ubls), particularly in the areas of cancer biology, infectious diseases, muscle wasting, and neurologic diseases, and are driving innovative efforts in drug discovery.

Nine platform sessions and two poster sessions will reflect the broad diversity of research in the field and will include topics such as mechanisms of Ub conjugation and deconjugation, cell cycle and signaling, physiology and development, and pathology and therapy. Besides invited speakers, many speaker slots are chosen from submitted abstracts to ensure good representation of those who are new to the field, young investigators, and recent results. Lively and well-attended poster sessions offer a venue where students and postdoctoral fellows can exchange ideas with each other and with senior scientists.

As the ‘mother of all ubiquitin conferences’ the FASEB SRC has an history of invited speakers staying for the entire conference, and is instrumental in bringing together Ub experts and beginners for friendly but effective research-oriented discussions.  Since most attendees present talks or posters, the active participation of the vast majority of the participants is ensured.  The small intimate environment of FASEB conferences provides maximal opportunity for scientific exchange.  This year we will do this in beautiful Snowmass, where discussions can spill over into the Rocky Mountain recreational activities.
