mRNA & protein trafficking meeting

A meeting at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, Nov 17-21, 2013.
From their Welcome Letter:

This meeting will bring together experts from the diverse fields of trafficking to discuss mechanisms of mRNA and protein transport, and their relationship to prominent diseases associated with organelle biogenesis. We hope to trigger significant scientific discourse between these interconnected, but traditionally separate fields. As our knowledge of the molecular mechanisms that regulate protein biogenesis is expanding rapidly, it is an ideal time to bring together researchers from the different disciplines in order to discuss new strategies to understand and, perhaps, intervene with the consequences of these trafficking-associated diseases.

Specific Topics:

  1. Asymmetric mRNA trafficking and polarized cell growth in eukaryotes
  2. Connection between ER biogenesis and disease
  3. mRNA trafficking to organelles
  4. Endolysosomal biogenesis and disease
  5. Peroxisomal and mitochondrial biogenesis and disease
  6. Cellular aggregates, cellular stress, and autophagy

Registration is free , and open till Oct, 15 2013.

I will be there…
