Workshop Details
Intrinsically Disordered Proteins; Using Diverse Methods to Understand Biological Roles
07/16/2019 - 07/20/2019
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.


Be aware that the meeting runs Tuesday-Saturday for this particular week.

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, Aha 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.
