The meeting’s main themes are: 1) ER protein biogenesis, maturation, quality control, and secretion; 2) ER stress and the unfolded protein response; 3) Interconnections between ER homeostasis and other cellular processes; 4) The roles of ER stress in diverse diseases.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
  • Protein Biogenesis at the ER
  • ER Protein Targeting and Translocation
  • Protein Folding and Quality Control
  • ER-Associated Degradation
  • Interorganellar Communication
  • Hijacking of the ER by Pathogens
  • ER Stress in Metabolic Disease
  • The UPR, Cell Fate, and Cancer

The conference covers eight sessions, four poster sessions, and career development workshops. We are delighted to have Jonathan Weissman, PhD (Whitehead Institute) present the EMBO Keynote Lecture.
