Event Name

Ubiquitin & ubiquitin-like proteins: At the crossroads from chromatin to protein. EMBO/CONICET Conference

Start Date 19th Oct 2014
End Date 24th Oct 2014

Ubiquitin (Ub) and Ub-like modifiers (Ubls) are small proteins that upon covalent attachment regulate protein functions. Because of the general role of Ub/Ubls in basically every cellular pathway and their key functions in disease onset, our goal is to strengthen bonds with other research fields. Therefore, we bring leading scientists from different research fields together and introduce them to the fascinating and versatile world of Ub/Ubls to identify novel research directions.

The format of the conference will be a combination of lectures by invited speakers [including Thomas Steitz, Nobel Prize in Chemistry (2009)], selected oral-poster presentations and poster presentations.

Topics will cover Ub and Ubl Enzymology and their relations to:

  • Chromatin & transcription regulation
  • RNA & Protein Quality Control
  • Nuclear envelope & transport
  • Signalling & DNA repair
  • Disease & Therapeutics  

Attendance will be limited to a total of 200 participants (excluding speakers) and poster presentations will be limited to 100.
