Autophagy continues to be one of the most exciting and topical subjects in biology. Since the first Autophagy Harden Conference (the 68th Harden, held in 2010), our understanding of the basic regulatory mechanisms and the physiological roles of autophagy in health and disease has advanced substantially.
Recent years have seen an impressive diversification in autophagy techniques and model systems, as well as seeing autophagy knowledge put to many novel practical applications, including disease intervention for which novel autophagy modulators are in the pipeline. This meeting brings together experts in the autophagy field from across the world to present cutting edge research on the molecular control of autophagy and the roles of autophagy in immunity, physiology and disease.
Earlybird registration deadline: 6 April 2018
Abstract submission deadline: 6 April 2018
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.
Unique to the Biochemical Society, Harden Conferences are residential research conferences covering a specialist topic.
The conferences bring together scientists from various backgrounds with a common interest in - but varying approaches to - the topic of the conference.
To maintain a suitably high level of discussion and presentation at the conference, it is desirable that participants be experienced in the field covered; most of the participants will be expected to have postdoctoral or equivalent experience, although Ph.D. students will also be welcome.
The planned scientific sessions feature speakers invited by the Organizers and, in addition, time is left for extensive discussion and for short contributions, including posters, by other conference participants.
All participants must be resident for the duration of the conference. Scientists wishing to participate are asked to apply online.
Bursaries and free places
A limited number of bursaries to cover the cost of registration are available to assist younger members of the Biochemical Society to attend the conferences.
Preference will be given to senior graduate students (or those who gained their Ph.D. in the last 5 years) and restricted to members of the Biochemical Society.
Applications for these places should be sent to the Biochemical Society from the applicant's supervisor and should be accompanied by an independent reference.
