The Protein Lipidation Conference: Enzymology, Signaling, and Therapeutics
July 31–Aug. 5, 2022
Saxtons River, VT
July 31-August 5, 2022
Launched in 1991 as an American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) Satellite Symposium, this conference was established as a FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) in 1995 and continues to evolve to meet the interests of researchers and to serve as a focal point for emerging areas of protein lipidation and cell biology.
Lipid modiﬁcations regulate the function of the target proteins through which they play essential roles in cell functions and in numerous human diseases including cancer, inﬂammation, infectious disease, and age-related disorders.

From protein biochemists to clinician and biotech scientists, the program also draws clinical investigators and scientists in biopharma who are interested in the diseases aﬀected by lipidated proteins.
The conference is organized around broad themes, which include structural biology and biochemistry of protein lipidation, novel method and chemical tools for studying protein lipidation, lipid modiﬁcation in physiology, signaling and diseases, and drug discovery targeting protein lipid modiﬁcations.
Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
- Structure biology of protein lipidation
- Enzymology of lipidation
- Chemical tools for studying protein lipidation
- Protein lipidation and cell function
- Lipid modiﬁcation in physiology, signaling, and disease
- Membrane structure and biophysics
- Drug discovery in lipid modiﬁcation
