Future Events > Intrinsically disordered proteins

Intrinsically disordered proteins

26—27 March 2012

University of York, UK

A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting

Up to half of all human proteins contain regions that are intrinsically disordered. This meeting aims to bring together researchers interested in such proteins (on both experimental and theoretical sides), to develop a coherent view of their structural details and function, and to facilitate networking.
  •  New Methods for studying intrinsically disordered proteins
  • Intrinsic Disorder Disease
  • Intrinsic disorder and functional regulation
  •  Protein-protein interactions and intrinsic disorder
Reviews by the speakers, based on their presentations at this major international meeting, will be published exclusively in Biochemical Society Transactions (Volume 40, part 5).
Abstract deadline: 30 January 2012
Online abstract submission is now closed. If you wish to submit an abstract please contact the Conference Office Late abstracts will not appear in the programme book.
Earlybird registration deadline: 27 February 2012

Cindy Schulenburg (ETH Zürich, Switzerland) won the British Biophysical Society poster prize for the poster entitled ‘Laboratory evolution of an intrinsically disordered enzyme’.
The Biochemical Society Oral Communication prize was won by Roy Beck-Barkai (Tel-Aviv University, Israel) for his oral communication titled ‘Structures and interactions in 'bottlebrush' Neurofilaments: the role of charged disordered proteins in forming hydrogel networks’.
'Eureka Moments: The protein that disappeared' As part of our centenary celebrations, a number of the Society’s Honorary Members have been asked to talk about the important moments in their careers and the future of the discipline.
The third to be released is that of Tim Hunt who spoke to Hugh Pelham about discovering the protein that disappeared. Watch the interview now!
The British Biophysical Society will award a prize of £100 to the best poster presented at this meeting by a researcher in the early stages of their career (post-graduate or first post-doctoral position).
