Proteins experience a significantly different environment in vivo than in the context of the idealized dilute environment commonly studied in experiments and simulations. The presence of a high concentration of other macromolecules in the cell (nucleic acids, sugars, lipids, chaperones and other proteins) can dramatically alter protein folding pathways and affect protein-protein interactions. The aim of this workshop is to explore the complications that arise in the cell, with an emphasis on macromolecular crowding, chaperone-mediated folding, membrane-protein interactions and protein aggregation.
We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering. If you have registered for a meeting you were not invited to, you may be subject to a $100 fee.
TSRC is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Ah Haa School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website. Feel free to contact TSRC's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
