Mitochondrial dysfunction has emerged as a key factor in a myriad of diseases, including neurodegenerative and metabolic disorders. Likewise, several diseases have been linked to dysfunctional selective autophagy. Protein aggregates and damaged or superfluous organelles such as mitochondria, ER, peroxisomes, endosomes and lysosomes can be degraded by autophagy in a highly selective manner that plays a key role in cellular homeostasis. The aims of the joint Keystone Symposia conferences on "Mitochondrial Biology" and "Selective Autophagy" were to:
Keystone Symposia convenes dynamic, open, peer-reviewed conferences on the exciting new frontiers of life science. Whether you are a geneticist, an immunologist or virtually any other type of life science investigator, and whether you are from academia, industry or the government/nonprofit sector, we think you will find the experience of attending a Keystone Symposia meeting valuable and memorable.
Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a 45-year history of convening open, peer-reviewed conferences that connect the scientific community and accelerate life science discovery.
