UK Proteostasis Conference 2024

8 May 2024 08:30 - 9 May 2024 14:30, Cambridge, United Kingdom

Through two days of talks, poster sessions, flash presentations and networking, the inaugural UK Proteostasis Conference will showcase diverse cutting-edge proteostasis research and address fundamental questions in the field, including how to expedite applications in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and agritech.

This conference will also launch the Proteostasis UK Network, which will unite the proteostasis community in the UK across the fields of protein folding, quality control, aggregation, degradation and beyond, to tackle challenges in fundamental biology and novel therapeutics through collaborations and sharing of resources, expertise and trainees.

Conference Speakers

We are delighted to be scheduling talks from academic and commercial research leaders in the proteostasis field, in addition to inviting flash talks to highlight a broad range of research from academic teams, and a panel discussion with pharmceutical leads.
