Translation, the process of making proteins encoded by the genome, is a fundamental process of life. It is highly conserved and exquisitely regulated. The regulation of translation plays a key role in many biological processes, including early development, cell proliferation, metabolic regulation, viral infection and the response to stress. Research on translation contributes to both fundamental understanding of biological processes, as well as to applications such as drug development, agriculture and biotechnology.
The Translation UK meetings always have a wide ranging coverage of the field, from ribosome structure to translational control of gene expression. Presented work varies from studies of single gene/mRNA to genome wide investigations, using systems from bacteria to human cells. We envisage including a session to highlight the exciting recent developments in covalent mRNA modification, also known as epitranscriptomics, and translation. We will be actively inviting researchers working on epitranscriptomics as well as the regular Translation UK community.
Translation UK has served as the focus of a large UK research community for more than 20 years, and is attended by world-leading researchers from the UK and overseas. Its annual occurrence strengthens the UK research community by providing important networking opportunities and disseminating the latest research to a wide audience. The meetings have been particularly successful in in developing the careers of junior scientists, providing opportunities for them to interact with leaders in the field as well as their peers in both formal and informal settings. Numerous PhD students have had their first conference experience at Translation UK and some are now amongst the leaders of the field themselves.
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.
Student Bursaries are available for this meeting.
