We will host an exciting cast of emerging and established ubiquitin-focused professionals from the academic, pharmaceutical, biotech and business communities. The three-day conference and workshop is unique in its focus on drug discovery within the ubiquitin pathway; and in its balance of both industrial and academic appeal.

Delegates will have the opportunity to network with like-minded researchers from around the world in roundtable discussions, poster sessions and an innovative pre-conference workshop. The workshop, covering topics in assays and assay platforms, substrate identification, and ubiquitylation, will begin the program. The focus will be on technical advances in ubiquitin research and its application to the treatment of human disease.

Past Keynote speakers include a Noble Laureate, Distinguished Academic Faculty and C-Suite Executives. The conference program will cover topics in oncology, infectious diseases, neurodegeneration, inflammation, diabetes and muscle wasting.
