UPDATE FROM CSH:
COVID-19: Because of the ongoing COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 outbreak, CSHL and the organizers have reached the difficult decision to postpone the meeting on Protein Homeostasis in Health and Disease originally scheduled for April 21-25, 2020 until November 13-17, 2020. We realize this is very inconvenient for you and hope you understand how difficult this decision has been to make. We are very much hoping that many of you will be able to participate in November and that you are able to change your travel plans with minimal cost and disruption.
We hope you understand this decision and sincerely regret how this may impact your upcoming plans.
If we do not hear from you we will assume you are still planning to attend the meeting. If you are unable to attend, we ask that you let us know as soon as possible (by March 27) to be eligible for a full refund.Thereafter our normal cancellation policies will apply.
Proper expression, folding, transport, and clearance of proteins are critical for cell function and organismal health. Chaperones and enzymes that post-translationally assist newly synthesized proteins help ensure that they are correctly folded and functional, or are degraded. Translocation machineries, proteasomes, and autophagic activities are critical for subcellular localization and for degradation as necessary. Stress and aging challenge the robustness of these chaperone and clearance networks leading to protein mismanagement, overload, and cellular dysfunction. In humans, this is associated with the accumulation and aggregation of misfolded and aggregation-prone proteins, a feature of numerous neurodegenerative, metabolic, and oncogenic diseases.
You are invited to participate in the 2020 meeting on Protein Homeostasis in Health & Disease. Groundbreaking work – on molecular chaperones, the unfolded protein response, stress responses, and how these processes are implicated in disease – has first been presented at this meeting over the past three decades. The 2020 meeting provides an opportunity to showcase the latest research in this area and will feature talks by leading investigators.
The meeting will begin after dinner at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21, and conclude with lunch on Saturday, April 25, 2020.
We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Apply in writing to Catie Carr stating need for financial support – preference is given to those submitting abstracts.
