Protein-Protein Interactions 2019

4 - 5 April 2019, Leeds, United Kingdom


Introduction
Virtually all vital cellular processes are controlled by protein-protein interactions (PPIs), including gene expression, proliferation, intracellular communication and apoptosis. The understanding and manipulation of PPIs therefore plays an important role in fathoming the biology of healthy and diseased states. Achieving this goal will lead to new probes of cell signalling pathways or systems biology, and molecular therapeutics for addressing unmet medical need.

To date, only a few PPIs have been the subject of drug discovery initiatives by the pharmaceuticals industry. Given the potential opportunities around modulating more of the estimated >650,000 PPIs, this field continues to generate considerable scientific interest, which has stimulated significant academic and industrial innovation. This meeting will address recent advances in the area. Topics will include: inducing protein degradation using small molecules, protein engineering and synthetic biology, integration of computational and experimental methods to study PPIs, characterisation and identification of new PPI inhibitors and lead optimization challenges for molecules targeting PPIs from case studies in drug discovery.Speakers from both industry and academia will describe strategies for addressing these challenges whilst showcasing the opportunity for creativity and innovation.

Student Bursaries

A limited number of student bursaries of up to £350 each are available to registered participants, as a contribution to the cost of registration fees, travel and accommodation.  The closing date for applications, to be made on the attached form to the conference secretariat (conferences@soci.org), is 22 February 2019.
