VERMILLION, S.D. -- The Sanford School of Medicine of The University of South Dakota is hosting a symposium on Ubiquitin, Protein Quality Control and Molecular Pathogenesis at the Andrew E. Lee Memorial Medicine and Science Building, June 22-24.
Due to the rapidly growing faculty research in the area of Protein Quality Control and Degradation (PQCD) at the Sanford School of Medicine of the University of South Dakota, this three-day conference 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 for participants to network with researchers and experts working in the field.
State-of-the-art lectures from world-renowned scientists and presentations by the Protein Quality Control Degradation faculty of the Sanford School of Medicine will be targeted to research scientists, senior medical students, and physicians. Invited speakers include Ivor J. Benjamin, M.D. of the University of Utah (Chaperone and PQCD); Mark Hochstasser, Ph.D., of Yale University (Ubiquitin and DUBS): Xiao-Jiang Li, M.D., Ph.D., of Emory University (UPS in Neurodegeneration); R. John Mayer, Ph.D. M.D., University of Nottingham, United Kingdom (UPS and PQCD); Peipei Ping, Ph.D., UCLA (Proteomics of Proteasomes); and Jeffrey Robbins, Ph.D., University of Cincinnati (Cardiac Proteinopathy).
