Protein Modification & Homeostasis

Protein modification by ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like proteins plays indispensable roles in protein homeostasis. The meeting is intended to provide a format for the exchange of ideas and information in related to current studies on the structure, regulation and function of the ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like protein modification systems in biology and human diseases, as well as protein degradation by autophagy and the ubiquitin-proteasome system. The meeting will cover, but not be limited to, the following main topics.

Major Topics:
1. Substrate recognition and proteolysis
2. Regulation of autophagy and the ubiquitin-proteasome system
3. DNA damage response and cancer
4. Infection, innate immunity and the inflammatory response
5. Metabolism
6. Stem cells and developmental control
7. Interplay between protein modification systems
8. Protein modifications and therapeutic innovation
