Ubiquitin & Friends Symposium 2024

In 2024, the “Ubiquitin & Friends Symposium” marked its 10th anniversary and brought together long-term as well as news friends of ubiquitin/Ubl biology, protein quality control and targeted protein degradation research where experts and novices from various academic levels interacted in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The symposium was organized by the SFB Targeted Protein Degradation (lead institution: University of Vienna) and took place on 2-3 May 2024 in the “Van Swieten Saal” in Vienna’s 9th district, close to Vienna’s city center.

Thanks to the guest speakers (see below), the many excellent abstracts received for short talk selection and the lively poster sessions preceded by flash talks, an exciting program could be created (see link to pdf below). The symposium was overbooked ahead of the announced registration deadline, which guaranteed a full house and lively setting. We regret that some who would like to join could not do so due to the early overbooking.
