The Department of Biochemistry and the Department of Biomolecular Chemistry are pleased to invite you to register for the 38th Steenbock Symposium on June 22-25, 2017. The registration deadline is May 14, with the early registration deadline falling on March 30.
The symposium’s theme, “Protein Trafficking in the Secretory Pathway,” will bring together researchers from the United States, as well as from Europe and Canada, to discuss and explore this important biochemical pathway. The symposium will take place on campus in the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery Building.
“This topic is researched from many different angles, mine being insulin and diabetes, but since many of the processes are important for multiple cellular functions we can all learn so much from each other at this symposium,” says Alan Attie, a professor of Biochemistry and one of the symposium’s organizers. “We seek to bring people together who may not meet each other elsewhere in order to generate new ideas and collaboration.”
Along with Attie, Biochemistry’s Tom Martin and Biomolecular Chemistry’s Jon Audhya are also serving as organizers. The Department of Biochemistry is part of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and the Department of Biomolecular Chemistry is part of the School of Medicine and Public Health.
The three researchers approach research on the secretory pathway in different ways and took advantage of that diversity when planning the symposium. Martin’s lab has studied the protein machinery at the end of the secretory pathway where soluble contents (e.g., hormones, inflammatory mediators) are delivered to the extracellular space. Audhya’s research focuses on basic and translational work. He studies various forms of nerve degeneration and mutations that affect the secretory pathway.
The Steenbock Symposium is supported by the Steenbock Endowment to honor Professor Harry Steenbock’s work as a distinguished Biochemistry faculty member, whose contributions spanned many areas of nutrition and biochemistry.
This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.
