Young Scientist Symposium

Protein Quality Control

Welcome to the Young Scientist Symposium on Protein Quality Control.

It is our pleasure to host you during this two-day virtual symposium from September 23rd
to September 24th 2021!

We are a mixed group of young scientists in the field of protein quality control, working in the labs of Eilika Weber-Ban (ETH Zurich) and Ulrich Hartl (MPIB Martinsried), and are organizing this event to provide other young scientists (postdocs and PhD students) with an attractive and interactive platform to present and discuss their current work with everyone in the field of protein quality control.


Our program, featuring a select group of established plenary speakers and young scientists, covers topics from molecular mechanisms and cellular regulation of co- and post-translational protein quality control pathways, to aggregation and protein conformational diseases.


In addition to our invited speakers, we are excited to feature a collection of short talks and flash talks by you!


Each session will start with a plenary talk by one of our invited speakers and will then be followed by several short talks (15 min) or flash talks (3 min + additional Q&A session) from other ambitious young scientists.


Do you want to attend this exciting symposium?



Registration has been closed. We are looking forward seeing you at the symposium.
