The Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute at the University of Wollongong proudly hosted the
3rd Proteostasis and Disease Symposium.
Proteostasis encompasses all those processes that act to maintain the correct levels and function of proteins in living systems.
The Symposium was held at the Novotel Northbeach in the beach-side city of Wollongong, located about 80 km south of Sydney, Australia.
The Symposium covered all areas of proteostasis, including:
Protein folding, misfolding and aggregation
Stress response and chaperones
Protein degradation pathways
Systems level proteostasis
