About the Conference
Autophagy has long been recognized as a central mechanism to maintain quality control in cells, to adapt to stress, and to recycle building blocks for the synthesis of new cellular components under conditions of energy restrictions. As such autophagy and its regulation is of crucial importance for health and disease in a highly contextual manner.
This EMBO Conference will concentrate on recent findings on molecular mechanisms, their impact on human diseases as well as their potential as therapeutic targets.
