Information

A prominent feature of our brain consists in the ability to dynamically modify its connectivity to sustain specific functions. At the cellular and molecular levels, these changes involve multiple cell types and sub-cellular compartments and rely on reversible post-translational modifications (PTMs) of specific proteins.
In the brain, PTMs virtually control all pathways that are required to ensure the development and function of the nervous system, and alterations of these pathways contribute to the pathogenesis of brain disorders.

The Post-Translational Modifications in Neuronal Physiology and Brain Disorders symposium will bring together leading scientists and young researchers with a strong interest in PTMs and will provide an up-to-date overview of the field.

The meeting will be especially focused on synapses, the elementary functional units of our brain, and on PTM-based mechanisms of synaptic regulation. The main goals of this symposium are to provide a forum for learning, exchanging ideas and establishing new collaborations.

 

 

The symposium program will be available soon
