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.

Protein disulphide bonds-biochemistry, biotechnology and biomedical impact

31 August—1 September 2018

University of Kent, UK

A Biochemical Society Scientific Meeting



Abstract deadline: Submission now closed


Earlybird registration deadline: 29 June 2018


The majority of proteins secreted by eukaryotic cells are subject to an array of post-translational modifications including intra- and inter-chain disulphide bonds. The pathway of synthesis and export of secreted proteins has been actively researched for over half a century. Fundamental enzymology and protein science continues on the mechanisms of disulphide bond formation alongside work with a more cell biological perspective on the oxidative protein folding pathway in the endoplasmic reticulum and its interaction with the secretory and protein degradation pathways. 

This meeting will bring together the communities working on the biochemistry and cell biology of the oxidative protein folding pathway, cell manipulation for production of high-value, disulphide-bonded protein products, and the contribution of protein misfolding to human disease, highlighting recent advances and to stimulate new research. In so doing we will also celebrate the work of Robert Freedman, a pioneer in this field.


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.
