2013 Thematic Meeting

Membrane Protein Folding

May 19-22, 2013, Seoul, South Korea The Biophysical Society and the Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS) are co-sponsoring a meeting on membrane protein folding that will take place at the Korea Institute for Advanced Study, May 19-22, 2013. This meeting, which is being organized by Society members James Bowie, UCLA, and Karen Fleming, Johns Hopkins University, will focus on fundamental aspects of how membrane proteins, fold ranging from physical chemistry (in vitro and in silico) to aspects of folding in the cell. In addition, the meeting will feature practical implications of protein folding such as protein design, stabilization, and misfolding in disease.
