14 Oct 2013 - 17 Oct 2013 - EMBL Hamburg, Germany

Bookmark and Share

The objectives of this meeting are

To bring together experts on different sarcomeric proteins and muscle diseases, employing a wide variety of approaches from molecular/structural to cellular/model systems studies, to increase communication between them and to underline similarities and discuss differences in the function and malfunction between the different sarcomeric components.

To provide a forum for young researchers to meet with experts covering a wide range of topics and to discuss their current and future work.

To integrate current efforts in elucidating the genetics and pathphysiology of sarcomere-linked myopathies with basic research and to identify where more information/research is needed.

To discuss the wealth of structural information on sarcomeric proteins that is currently being produced due to the world-wide efforts in structural biology, and harnessing this for dynamic computational analysis, mutation analysis and drug design.
