15th Midwest Conference on Protein Folding, Assemblies and Molecular Motions

has been canceled as a precaution against spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus

Please check back in early 2021 for information on the rescheduled conference

Thank you for your support of the conference!

WHAT:

This one-day meeting of Midwest research laboratories interested in protein folding, aggregation, binding, and dynamics, features talks and posters (from graduate students and postdocs, plus two PIs). Topics include:
1. In vitro experiments: protein folding, binding, aggregation, dynamics
2. In silico approaches:
computational models and genome-wide approaches to understanding protein folds, dynamics, and folding mechanisms
3. Proteins in vivo: co-translational folding, roles for molecular chaperones, misfolding/aggregation/amyloid formation, and cellular mechanisms for recognizing and clearing misfolded proteins

WHY:

(1) To gather Midwestern protein scientists together so we can learn more about each others’ research!
(2) To provide graduate students and postdocs with a forum for presenting their research (talks and posters) results
