Workshop Details
Intrinsically Disordered Proteins; Using Diverse Methods to Understand Biological Roles (In-person Participation)
07/11/2023 - 07/15/2023
Meeting Description:

Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) have recently attracted widespread attention as they play an important role in cellular signaling pathways and their dysfunction is implicated in a number of cardiovascular and neurological disorders as well as diabetes and cancer. While there has been considerable progress in characterizing IDPs, there are significant challenges including characterizing high-resolution structural details of IDP conformational ensembles, understanding the molecular mechanisms of IDP functions and designing effective therapeutic strategies for dealing with IDP dysfunction. The purpose of this workshop will be to promote cross-disciplinary interactions between experimental, computational and theoretical disciplines to address these aforementioned challenges.


IMPORTANT: Participants should be aware that this workshop runs Tuesday through Saturday. Festival lodging rates will be in effect on the night of Sunday, July 9th. Discounted lodging rates start on Monday, July 10th. If you are planning to arrive on Sunday, you can stay at the Hampton Inn (970-547-4120) next to the airport and come up to Telluride first thing on Monday. You will receive a discount at the Hampton Inn by saying you are a TSRC scientist.

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.

Telluride Science 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, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on Telluride Science's website. Feel free to contact Telluride Science's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
