FASEB SRC — Protein Kinases and Protein Phosphorylation
06 Aug 2017 - 11 Aug 2017 • Cambridge, United Kingdom
Abstract:
This conference focuses on the biology of protein kinases and phosphorylation signaling. Among FASEB’s longest-running SRCs, it brings together a dynamic international community of junior investigators, trainees, and established researchers from a field that is achieving startling new insight and medical breakthroughs. The program will link detailed understanding of protein structure and biochemical mechanism to control of large-scale processes like the cell division cycle, cell morphogenesis, and metabolism. This SRC will explore the field’s latest research, which is revealing surprising mechanisms of regulation, previously unappreciated subcellular organization, logic of pathways that coordinate diverse intracellular systems. Importantly, derangement of kinase signaling underlies disease, including cancer and diabetes. Drugs targeting kinases and phosphorylation have achieved dramatic cures and promise more, and the conference has consistently offered a robust platform for clinically important work.
