The first edition of the Symposium on Structural Biology 2021 (SimBE 2021) will be focused on the molecular mechanisms of human diseases associated with poor protein folding, including cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
With the increased longevity and aging of the human population, the prevalence of age-related disorders keeps growing. Therefore, it is crucial to unravel the molecular processes that lead to the development of these diseases as this will enable the discovery of novel therapeutic targets.
The event takes place ONLINE, on the Even3 platform
Structural biology of protein misfolding and aggregation
Protein aggregation and phase separation
From mechanisms to targets in protein misfolding diseases
