Alzheimers, Parkinson's Disease, one of the inherited forms of emphysema, CJD, Cystic Fibrosis, Type 2 Diabetes, and even some cancers are all related to the abnormal folding of proteins within the body. These devastating diseases cause untold misery, extracting both monetary and human tolls. This highly focused conference will discuss strategies for elucidating protein misfolding mechanisms, methods for improved study of these events and applications to the development of effective drug discovery and development for the treatment of these disorders. Researchers doing work in any related research areas are encouraged to participate.
