About the Workshop
Regulation of signaling by dynamic phosphorylation is a fundamental regulatory mechanism in eukaryotes. Dynamic signaling is obtained by tightly controlled activities of protein kinases and phosphatases. This EMBO Workshop focuses on recent developments in understanding protein phosphatases in signaling and disease and therapeutic approaches to modulate phosphatases. The topics will span system-wide approaches to dissect complex signaling, crosstalk between kinases, signaling molecules and phosphatases. These topics will be complemented with focused sessions on tyrosine phosphatases and ser/thr phosphatases covering mechanisms, deregulation in disease and structural insights. The objective is to give participants insight into the latest developments and provide them with a broad understanding of different aspects of signaling and protein phosphatases.
About EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).
Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
