Ribosome heterogeneity and specialisation
- Date: Monday 6 November 2023, 09:00 – 17:00
- Location: Online
- Interval: Every day
- Until: Tuesday 7 November 2023
- Cost: Free
A two day scientific discussion meeting organised by Dr Julie Aspden (Faculty of Biological Sciences), Dr Maria Barna, Dr William Faller, and Professor Anders Lund.
Ribosomes were thought to be homogeneous, passively translating mRNA into proteins. However, recent work has discovered that the composition of ribosomes is highly heterogeneous and that different ribosome populations can regulate the translation of specific mRNAs. This meeting will discuss latest advances, covering all types of ribosome heterogeneity in a variety of organisms and systems, including impact on human disease.
The schedule of talks, speaker biographies and abstracts will be available soon. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.
We particularly encourage the participation of early career researchers (PhD students, postdocs and research technicians) to submit abstracts for either the short talk or the poster session on their latest work on ribosome heterogeneity and specialisation. Work can cover any type of ribosome heterogeneity in a variety of organisms and systems, including impact on human disease.
Short talk from abstract
The organisers invite researchers in the field to submit a short abstract (200-250 words) to be selected for a presentation slot within the meeting. If successful, you will be required to prepare a 10 minute presentation which will be followed by 5 minutes for questions and discussion. Please submit your presentation title and abstract to the Scientific Programmes team no later than Friday 22 September. Your submission should include the text 'Short talk abstract submission' in the email subject line.
There will be a poster session on Monday 6 November. If you would like to present a poster, please submit your proposed title, abstract (no more than 200 words and in third person), author list the name of the proposed presenter and institution to the Scientific Programmes team no later than Friday 6 October 2023. Please include the text 'Poster abstract submission' in the email subject line. The organisers also encourage online participants to submit a poster abstract. If successful, they will be displayed on the online event platform for the duration of the meeting.
