PQCD Symposium

Third Symposium on Ubiquitin, Protein Quality Control, and Molecular Pathogenesis

Organized by the Protein Quality Control and Degradation Research Center, Division of Basic Biomedical Sciences, at the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine

The area of Protein Quality Control and Degradation (PQCD) has become a major research thrust at Sanford School of Medicine of the University of South Dakota.  In light of the burgeoning interest in this area, the Third Symposium on Ubiquitin, Protein Quality Control, and Molecular Pathogenesis will be held June 4-6, 2014, at the Deadwood Gulch Convention Center in the beautiful Black Hills of western South Dakota.  

Featuring state-of-the-art lectures from world-renowned scientists and presentations by the PQCD faculty of Sanford School of Medicine, this symposium will focus on the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) and autophagy in cardiovascular disease, neural degeneration, and cancer biology.  In addition, a series of general discussions and poster sessions will provide an opportunity to network with researchers and experts working in the field. This symposium is targeted to research scientists, physicians, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and medical students.
