First Autumn School on Proteostasis from molecular mechanisms to organismal consequences

Proteostasis encompasses pathways that synthesize, fold, traffic and degrade cellular proteins. These pathways are
emerging as key determinants of ageing, neurodegeneration and cancer. The exciting field of proteostasis spans diverse
areas ranging from protein structure to human pathology. The School aims to bring this diversity to passionate PhD
students and postdocs, preparing them for interdisciplinary approaches in their own research. We will outline fundamental
concepts in proteostasis with an emphasis on state-of-the-art and key questions for the future through lectures and
discussions. Whether you are a newcomer to the field, or an experienced student passionate to extend your knowledge in
this rapidly expanding field, you are welcome to join us.
