Biophysical Approaches to Protein Folding and Disease
20th – 21st July 2017 at Edinburgh International Conference Centre
Correct protein folding is fundamental for a cell to function properly. Many cellular processes help a protein to gain the defined structure needed to function, or are involved in the clearance of non-functional misfolded proteins. Disregulation of these processes can lead to non-physiological protein conformations and subsequently the onset of disease.
This satellite meeting will be focused on how molecular-scale biophysical methods can be applied to the timely study of biomedically-pressing issues. Protein misfolding is fundamentally a biophysical problem, amenable to multiscale analysis using complementary techniques, that could also provide a basis for novel biophysical applications. This meeting would notably provide an opportunity for ARBRE-MOBIEU to explore new joint research projects.
