New Approaches for Investigating Nascent Peptide Folding

11—13 December 2017

Downing College, Cambridge

A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting



Abstract deadline: closed.


Earlybird registration deadline: closed


This timely meeting investigates new methodologies for studying the early folding profiles of nascent proteins as they are being synthesised by ribosomes.

With growing evidence, supported by several high impact publications in the last few months, that the vast majority of proteins fold into their native structures before they are released by the ribosome, this meeting aims to discuss protein folding and how it is inherently coupled to protein synthesis and chain elongation. The efficiency of these folding and targeting mechanisms is imperative to the smooth running of cellular processes.


With an introductory talk discussing how high resolution structures of the ribosome have revealed exciting information about the molecular basis of protein synthesis, given by Nobel Laureate and President of the Royal Society, Professor Venki Ramakrishnan, this will be an excellent opportunity to network and meet to discuss research. 



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.


Grants and Bursaries

The Biochemical Society offers a programme of grants and bursaries supporting research, attendance at scientific conferences and the sponsorship of events.
