About the EMBO-FEBS Lecture Course
Cells constantly surveil and monitor their proteome to ensure proper function. These processes, spanning multiple steps from protein synthesis to folding and degradation, are summarized as proteostasis. Extensive research in the last years has provided molecular insight into the molecular mechanisms underlying proteostasis and its links to conditions such as neurodegeneration and ageing.
The Susan Lindquist School on Proteostasis aims to give a comprehensive overview of past and current work on proteostasis to the next generation of scientists in this field. The program contains review and upcoming science lectures, career development sessions and many opportunities to exchange.
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.
