Ubiquitin & Friends Symposium 2024

organized by the University of Vienna, lead institution of the SFB Targeted Protein Degradation

The Ubiquitin & Friends Symposium is an annual international meeting taking place in the beautiful capital of Austria, aiming to bring together scholars from various fields studying ubiquitin/Ubl biology and protein degradation in a personal, family-like atmosphere, as suggested by the name.

We will be covering various topics ranging from structural insights of the molecular machines involved in proteostasis to chemical approaches for studying the ubiquitin system, as well as various biological pathways such as autophagy, protein quality control, DNA repair and proteostasis related to development, stress and immune regulation.

May 2-3, 2024

Venue: Van Swieten Hall of the MedUni Vienna
Address: Van-Swieten-Gasse 1a, 1090 Vienna, Austria
