An exclusive three day conference featuring keynotes by 15 of the world’s top scientists within protein research. Topics include: autophagy, DNA damage signaling, signaling systems and networks, metabolism and aging, cell cycle as well as epigenetics and cancer signaling.
Confirmed speakers:
Post-translational modifications (PTMs) in cell signaling have evolved as the eukaryotic cell’s most important regulatory mechanism to regulate intracellular protein networks in response to external or internal cues. Site-specific modification of proteins by PTMs such as phosphorylation, ubiquitylation, and acetylation are involved in virtually all signaling pathways that orchestrate fundamental cellular processes including cell cycle progression, apoptosis, the DNA damage response, autophagy, and metabolism. Deregulation of proteins involved in these important cellular responses can often lead to disease, and the enzymes catalyzing addition or removal of PTMs have therefore emerged as prominent therapeutic targets. The meeting will focus on the cellular regulation of these fundamental processes by bringing together world leading researchers in the area of PTM functions in different cell signaling networks.

About the conference

To support cross pollination and a free atmosphere of trust and openness the maximum number of participants at the conference will be 220 including faculty. The conference will take place in beautiful surroundings north of Copenhagen, isolated from outside intrusions. The participants will be staying at or near the conference site and no other parties will be present during the conference period.

The aim is to create an atmosphere where fresh research and new ideas can be discussed freely.  The conference is fully sponsored by the Novo Nordisk Foundation who covers the conference fee, hotel, transport and meals during the conference. Participants cover their own travel expenses.
