'Life & Death of Proteins': Conference Organized by UBIMOTIF Network

Life & Death of Proteins 2023

Protein ubiquitination is a process by which a small protein called ubiquitin is attached to a target protein, marking it for degradation by the cellular proteasome machinery. This process plays a critical role in maintaining protein homeostasis by removing damaged or unwanted proteins. Defects in protein ubiquitination have been linked to various diseases, including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders, and immune system dysfunction. Thus, understanding the regulation and function of protein ubiquitination is crucial for developing new therapies to treat these diseases.

'Life & Death of Proteins' aims to bring together world leading scientific experts to discuss the modern view of protein ubiquitination, deubiquitination and homeostasis both in health and disease. The meeting was conceived within the UBIMOTIF consortium, an ETN Marie-Curie network coordinated by Prof. Jakob Nilsson from the University of Copenhagen. 

'Life & Death of Proteins' will take place on Nov 16-17, 2023 in Rome, Italy.
