Topics include:

The symposium will cover recent advances in the field of protein
folding and misfolding, and their implications in amyloid diseases
such as Alzheimer’s disease, Type-2 diabetes, Parkinson disease
and Huntington disease.

Research topics to be covered in the symposium include:

  • Kinetic and structural studies of protein misfolding
  • Amyloid inhibitors
  • Membrane-assisted amyloid aggregation
  • High-resolution structure of amyloid aggregates
  • New approaches to study amyloid aggregation
  • Functional amyloids
  • Pathology of amyloids
  • In-vivo studies on amyloids
