About the Workshop

This third edition of the EMBO workshop on Proteostasis focuses on promoting an integrated understanding of the proteostasis network. The proteostasis network is the collection of biological mechanisms that assure protein quality control, from the point of protein synthesis to the point of protein degradation. Imbalances in proteostasis lead to the accumulation of misfolded proteins and are associated with neurodegeneration, cancer, chronic diseases and aging.

Recent advances highlight the emerging complexity of the proteostasis network, which integrates many central cellular mechanisms and is subject to cell-autonomous and non-autonomous regulation. Proteostasis regulation and demands differ between tissues and developmental stages, and must self-adjust to the dynamic requirements of cells and organisms.

This Workshop will take the participants on a scientific journey within the proteostasis landscape. Topics covered include protein synthesis, protein folding, chaperones, quality control, protein degradation, regulation of proteostasis, proteostasis in aging and disease and more. The workshop provides an opportunity to unite expertise from different disciplines that cover each of the major nodes of the network. The Workshop will establish a platform to facilitate stimulating discussions on the most recent developments in the field and generate an integrative overview of the proteostasis network.

Early career investigators are encouraged to submit abstracts to be selected for short talks.
