11th International Meeting on Yeast Apoptosis

Event Date: 29 September, 2015 to 3 October, 2015

PROTEOSTASIS will co-organize, through the PROTEOSTASIS member Paula Ludovico (WG2), the 11th International Meeting on Yeast Apoptosis which aims to join enthusiastic researchers that exploit yeast as a preferential cellular model to study regulated cell death, aging and stress response pathways.

The scientific program includes keynote, invited and selected lectures, as well as poster presentations to allow early stage career researchers to present their results and to discuss different methodological and technological aspects of the work they are developing, contributing for training and share of technology and resources.

Several different European groups participating in this meeting are devoted to the study of intracellular proteolysis in yeast and its role for cell homeostasis and in the control of cell death mode. These aspects are also explored in the context of different model systems, such as yeast models for neurodegenerative diseases and cancer, which have translational potential.
