Unconventional Protein and Membrane Trafficking

4—7 October 2016

Lecce, Italy

A Biochemical Society Independent Meeting


The focus of this meeting is on heterogeneous mechanisms, collectively named "unconventional protein secretion". These processes cover major biological problems, such as cell-to-cell communication, tumorigenesis, tissue remodelling, inflammation, host–pathogen interactions, lipid metabolism. The underlying mechanisms are still subject to intense investigations and the UPMT meeting will provide a dynamic forum for discussion of these topics.
