The Reversible Protein Acetylation in Health and Disease Conference

August 7-11, 2022
Dorado, Puerto Rico


August 7-11, 2022

Launched in 2007, this FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) is the only scientific meeting of its kind dedicated to exploring protein acetylation from basic to clinical applications.

This conference will bring together a diverse group of scientists from academia and industry who study the biochemistry, structural biology, cellular mechanisms, physiology, pharmacology, and therapeutic intervention of protein acetylation functions and regulation.

Major themes of this conference are: 1) Structure, functions, mechanisms, and regulation of HDACs, sirtuins, bromodomains, and protein acetyltransferase; 2) Dysregulation of protein acetylation and acylation in cancer, aging, and other diseases; 3) Novel chemical and pharmacological technologies applied to the study of protein acetylation and the application of acetylation related therapeutics to human disease.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
  • Writers of protein acetylation
  • Readers of protein acetylation
  • Protein acetylation erasers
  • The histone code
  • Acetyl CoA-metabolism and cancer
  • Acetylation in development
  • Acetylation in disease and aging
  • Acetylation and cancer
  • Dynamic protein acetylation

The conference covers nine oral sessions and three poster sessions. Each coffee break includes a “Meet the Experts” session with the speakers from the previous session available for questions and discussion at individual tables.

The Career Development Workshop features a panel of experts from different scientific career paths who share their insights and answer questions from trainees about their career choices. Additionally, a Women's Power Hour is included in the program to promote networking.
