Ubiquitin & Friends Symposium 2023

organized by the SFB Targeted Protein Degradation, University of Vienna

The Ubiquitin & Friends Symposium is an international meeting taking place in the beautiful capital of Austria and aims to bring together scholars from various fields of ubiquitin and protein degradation research 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 and proteostasis during stress, aging and diseases.
