534 Fundamentals of Protein Folding in Diseases

Wednesday, November 11, 2015: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
151A/B (Salt Palace Convention Center)

This session seeks submissions focused on experimental and theoretical characterization and prediction of the thermodynamics and mechanism(s) of protein folding as well as the role that aggregates play in disease pathogenesis. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the dynamics and mechanisms of protein aggregation, the formation of off-pathway aggregates, the characterization of aggregate size and structure, the therapeutic inhibition of aggregation, and the interaction of aggregates with target cells.
