Ubiquitin and cellular regulation

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology

Bethesda, MD - This SRC brings together leading international investigators in the field, junior scientists, and those who have recently entered the field of protein ubiquitination. Structural, molecular, and cellular biology continue to reveal both novel and common themes in protein ubiquitination. New discoveries continue to expand the basic and clinical potential of understanding Ub and Ubls, particularly in the areas of cancer biology, infectious diseases, muscle wasting, and neurologic diseases, and are driving efforts in drug discovery. Nine platform sessions and two poster sessions will reflect the broad diversity of research in the field and will include topics such as mechanisms of Ub conjugation and deconjugation, cell cycle and signaling, physiology and development, and pathology and therapy. Each session will include both invited speakers and those chosen from submitted abstracts to ensure good representation of those who are new to the field and/or young investigators. Lively and well-attended poster sessions offer a venue where students and postdoctoral fellows can exchange ideas with each other and with senior scientists. The 2016 conference will take place in Big Sky, Montana.

FASEB has announced a total of 36 Science Research Conferences (SRC) in 2016. Registration opens Jan. 7, 2016. For more information about an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2016 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 30 societies with more than 125,000 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.
