The Ubiquitin and Ub-like Proteins Conference: Cell Functions and Therapeutic Targeting
July 24–29, 2022
July 24-29, 2022
The cross-fertilization of ideas and approaches that the meeting engenders cannot be underestimated. It convenes world-renowned experts and beginning investigators who represent a variety of disciplines and approaches within the large ﬁeld of protein modiﬁcation by UB and UBLs.
By assembling such a broad group in an intimate setting, the conference helps bridge the gaps between the various subspecialties and moves toward a comprehensive and current understanding of the molecular and genetic basis of the UB family pathways.
The conference brings together academics from the U.S. and Europe and trainees and independent investigators from the biotech industry who have an interest in the ubiquitin system.
Have questions about the conference? Email us at email@example.com.
In particular, it facilitates cross talk and collaboration between investigators who: 1) Examine biological roles of speciﬁc UB/UBL modiﬁcation pathways; 2) Deﬁne networks regulating and regulated by UB/UBL conjugation; 3) Study structures and mechanisms of action of enzymes mediating UB/UBL modiﬁcations and machineries that recognize these modiﬁcations and translate them into altered and/or targeted protein functions; 4) Develop small molecules that target UB/UBL modiﬁcation cascades as probes or potential therapeutics.
Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
- Mechanism of Ubiquitin Conjugation & Deconjugation
- Ubiquitin-like Proteins and Atypical Ubiquitin
- The Role of Ubiquitin in Diverse Diseases
- Therapeutic Targeting and Tools
- Signaling Pathways and Cell Fate
- Organelles and Pathways
- Protein Quality Control and Stress
