Conference Summary

Launched in 1990, this FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) is the only scientific meeting dedicated to exploring the forefront of protein folding. From biochemistry and biophysics to the role of cellular pathways in protein maintenance to diseases and clinical applications, this 2020 meeting marks the SRC’s 30th anniversary.

The conference brings together an interdisciplinary group of scientists from academia and industry who conduct research on the cellular and biophysical aspects of protein folding, degradation, etc, as well as the consequences of protein misfolding and aggregation. This meeting will focus on the basic science of defining protein folding pathways enabled by the proteostasis network, the functions of molecular chaperones and co-chaperones in folding versus degradation decisions, and their role in controlling toxic protein aggregation.
