EMBO Workshop: The regulation of aging and proteostasis

Homeostasis is critical for cellular and organismal functionality, survival, and lifespan. Organisms respond to environmental insults by activating transcriptional and post-transcriptional programs, which promote protein homeostasis (proteostasis). Proteostasis is regulated by several transcription factors including the heat shock factors (HSF), and the forkhead (FOXO) factors as well as by the unfolded protein response (UPR) and […]

Bi-annual meeting of the « Cellular Proteolysis » group of the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

The objective of this meeting is to follow scientific developments in cellular proteolysis in both physiological and pathological contexts. In all living organisms, proteins are produced during a process called “protein synthesis” and degraded in a process called “proteolysis”. These cellular mechanisms contribute to the continuous renewal of certain proteins in the fine regulation of […]

EMBO Ubiquitin Meeting

Ubiquitin (Ub) and Ub-like modifiers (Ubls) are small proteins that upon covalent attachment regulate protein functions. Because of the general role of Ub/Ubls in basically every cellular pathway and their key functions in disease onset, our goal is to strengthen bonds with other research fields. Therefore, we bring leading scientists from different research fields together […]

The Third Joint Symposium on Neuroacanthocytosis

Neurodegeneration with Brain Iron Accumulation (NBIA) is a group of rare, genetic, neurological disorders characterized by the progressive degeneration of the nervous system. The common feature among all individuals with NBIA is iron accumulation in the brain, along with a progressive movement disorder. At this time, the exact relationship between genetic causes, iron accumulation and […]
