Congratulations to meeting chair, Ivan Dikic
Ivan has also been awarded the Ernst Jung Prize 2013 for his groundbreaking work in understanding the role of Ubiquitin in cellular signal regulation. This award will be presented at ceremony on May 3, 2013 in Hamburg, Germany.
Congratulations to Brenda Schulman
Ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like modifiers regulate myriads of cellular processes. In this meeting, we aim to bring together leading researchers from the fields of ubiquitin signaling as well as autophagy, a process that depends on the ubiquitin-like proteins Atg8 and Atg12. It is now clear that many mechanistic aspects and signaling concepts of ubiquitin attachment, recognition and hydrolysis are shared in the autophagy system. More importantly, significant cross-talk exists, as ubiquitination plays a central role in determining cargo for autophagosomal processing. The talks will highlight the most recent developments in the ubiquitin and autophagy arenas, and should stimulate many discussions about where and how the two fields can learn from each other.
