Current topics in protein chemistry symposium, 17th Nov. 2017

The Kaj Ulrik Linderstrøm-Lang Centre welcomes you at the scientific symposium entitled 'Protein folding and stability – From molecules to disease' on 12th November 2019.

The symposium includes talks by internationally recognized speakers, a poster session and plenty of opportunities for networking. See and download the full program here.

We have more than 250 participants and 45 posters signed up already. See the list of posters here (abstracts will be added shortly), and the list of participants here.

The Symposium will include talks by the following accepted invited speakers:

  • Xavier Salvatella (IRB Barcelona, ES)
    Cooperative folding of polyglutamine helices in transcriptional regulators"
  • Lila Gierasch (University of Massachusets Amhurst, US)
    "The Versatile and Multifunctional Allosteric Hsp70 Chaperone"
  • Bernd Bukau (University of Heidelberg, DE)
    Mechanisms of folding and assembly of newly synthesized proteins
  • Henriette Autzen (University of California San Fransisco, US)
    Development of native lipid nanodiscs for keeping membrane proteins feral
  • Rina Rosenzweig (Weizmann Institute of Science, IL)
    The true tales of the flexible tails - Interaction of J-domain proteins with Hsp70 chaperones
  • Claus Wilke (University of Texas at Austin, US)
    The unreasonably good performance of covariation methods for the prediction of structural contacts
  • John Kuriyan (Berkeley University of California, US)
