Spotlight on Science Meetings, Conferences and Events brings you information on the following event: Regulation & Function of Small GTPases - Conference.
This is an interactive forum that covers the latest developments in the small GTPase field and presents the newest technological advancements that are being used to unravel the complex roles of small GTPases in human health and disease. To stimulate cross-pollination of ideas among researchers investigating basic biochemical mechanisms, cell and tissue biology, and translational models to define the diverse functions of small GTPases.
Small GTPases (e.g. Ras, Rac, Rho, Cdc42, Rab, Rap, Rheb and Ral) are essential for key cellular processes such as cell differentiation, proliferation, and migration, as well as the regulation of subcellular events such as vesicle trafficking. These critical functions of small GTPases make them important participants in a wide variety of physiological and pathophysiological processes.
There will be the opportunity at this event for oral and poster presentations and social activities will provide all registrants with opportunities to exchange ideas and formulate new collaborations. It is anticipated that there will be funds available to support minority and female applicants at early stages of their careers.
