On Nov. 26, from noon until 6 p.m., MIPT’s Research Center for Molecular Mechanisms of Aging and Age-Related Diseases will hold a series of online talks titled Molecular Mechanisms of Neurodegenerative Diseases, an international school for young researchers. The language of the event is English.
The talks will focus on research into the structure of membrane proteins and the molecular mechanisms of their functioning that are associated with the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases.
Topics to be discussed:
- Molecular insights into the mechanisms behind Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
- Intracellular biophysical processes involved in neurodegenerative diseases.
- Amyloid precursor protein and its role in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases.
- Development of promising drugs, particularly D-enantiomeric peptides that affect protein oligomerization.
- Structural studies of amyloidogenic and intrinsically disordered proteins.
Sign up for the event. There is no fee, but the number of participants is limited.
