The role of glycosylation on serpin biology and conformational disease
The aim of the conference is to bring together scientists working on the molecular aspects of protein conformational disease, specifically on serpinopathies, and on the role of glycosylation on the folding, stability, function and cellular fate of serpin proteins. Although this topic is recognised as an important aspect in the field, it has not been the focus of a dedicated conference so far. This event aims to be a milestone in the broader topic of the role of glycosylation on conformational disease, devoting a substantial time to open discussion with the intention of fostering collaborations and promoting new ideas.
Glycoscience, which focuses on the study of the structural and functional roles of carbohydrates in their biological context, has an increasing impact on many areas such as biotechnology, health, food and energy. IMMUNOSHAPE is a Marie Curie European Training Network that provides multidisciplinary and multisectorial training in biomedical glycoscience and its industrial applications to a new generation of young scientists. The training course on Intellectual property strategy and applications in life sciences will be on the morning of September 27th and is open to all the participants of the LE STUDIUM Conference on The role of glycosylation on serpin biology and conformational disease.
Please specify your interest in attending this training session in your registration form. Registration to the session is free but mandatory.
