Scientific Meetings and Training Events


The Biochemical Society provides an extensive range of events, including scientific conferences, training events, outreach activities, medal lectures, and policy and education events.  This programme provides an excellent opportunity to magnify your research by submitting an abstract for an oral communication or poster presentation, and sharing your work with the wider molecular biosciences community.

Post-translational modifications (PTMs) of proteins play an important role in cellular function. Life Sciences 2019 will bring together researchers from across disciplines to discuss significant challenges and gain new perspectives on the role of PTMs in physiological function and disease processes.

The programme will include keynote lectures by award-winning researchers, and feature symposia from experts in the field on topics including PTMs in cardiac structure and function, regulation of neuronal synapses and stress responses, protein methylation and transglutaminase-mediated PTMs in health and disease, carbon monoxide modulation of ionic homeostasis, redox signalling, and non-enzymatic PTMs.

Co-organised by the Biochemical Society, the British Pharmacological Society and The Physiological Society, the meeting encourages networking and discussion between researchers from across the broad disciplines represented by the societies.

Symposia
Each symposium will include two senior speakers and one ECR. with two spaces for oral communications elevated from abstracts.

 

Keynote speakers include:

  • Fiona Marshall, MSD (BPS Vane Lecture)
  • Qian Wu, University of Leeds (Biochemical Society Early Career Research Award: Signalling)
  • Roger Hajjar, The Mount Sinai Hospital, (The Physiological Society Lecture)

Symposia
Each symposium will include two senior speakers and one ECR with two spaces for oral communications elevated from abstracts. Confirmed symposia at the event include:

  • Protein methylation in health and disease
  • Post-translational modifications of proteins related to stress-response
  • Post-translational modifications in the regulation of neuronal synapses
  • Carbon monoxide modulation of ionic homeostasis
  • Transglutaminase mediated post-translational modifications in human disease
  • Features and regulation of non-enzymatic PTM
  • Post-translational modification and implications for cardiac structure and function
  • Redox signalling and protein phosphorylation

We are now seeking abstracts that complement or extend these areas, or topics of general interest that fit the meeting remit.

The meeting should foster many collaborations because people will have a rare opportunity to talk to those working on the same problems but maybe with very different approaches.

An optional extra half-day training session Practical Python takes place on Tuesday 19 March 2019.

 

Oral communication slots are available at this meeting. All attendees, particularly researchers in the early stages of their career, are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration as an oral communication. Abstract submission will close on 21 January 2019.
