FASEB Science Research Conference: From Unfolded Proteins in the ER to Disease

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology

Bethesda, MD - From Unfolded Proteins in the ER to Disease 2015 is a unique scientific conference, which focuses on the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and its functions. The purpose of the meeting is to merge recent developments in molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, and physiology aimed at unraveling the complexities of secretory protein folding, ER stress pathways, lipid signaling, and ER membrane biology, and how failure of these processes lead to pathologies and disease. This meeting will include talks from outstanding scientists, both invited and selected from poster abstracts. The meeting is known for its active discussions, not only during the presentation session, but also during the free afternoons, and especially during the poster sessions. Posters will remain on display during most of the conference and a selection will be advertised in oral poster pitches. The venue, Vermont Academy, is excellently suited for the mingling of junior and established scientists, which will be strengthened by meet-the-speaker sessions that allow discussions of both career issues and science.

FASEB has announced a total of 34 Science Research Conferences (SRC) in 2015. Registration opens January 20, 2015. For more information about an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2015 SRCs, please visit

Since 1982, FASEB SRC has offered a continuing series of inter-disciplinary exchanges that are recognized as a valuable complement to the highly successful society meetings. Divided into small groups, scientists from around the world meet intimately and without distractions to explore new approaches to those research areas undergoing rapid scientific changes. In efforts to expand the SRC series, potential organizers are encouraged to contact SRC staff at Proposal guidelines can be found at

FASEB is composed of 27 societies with more than 120,000 members, making it the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States. Our mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy. r>9650 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20814-3998
