Conference overview

The 6th Proteomics in Cell Biology and Disease Mechanisms conference will again be held in association with EMBL-EBI and the Wellcome Genome Campus.

The field of proteomics continues to develop rapidly due to technological and computational advances in high-throughput methods and multi-omics big data integration. This year’s programme will focus on medical and clinical applications of proteomics, particularly in cell biology and infectious diseases. The conference will also highlight technological advances in structural proteomics, protein-protein interactions and post-translational modifications.

This is a cross-disciplinary meeting that will bring together proteomics technology experts from academia and industry, life science specialists, and medical communities who are interested in systems biology, cell signalling, structural biology, as well as disease and clinical proteomics.

EMBL Heidelberg will be hosting this year’s joint conference, in a series that alternates between Heidelberg, Germany and Wellcome Genome Campus, UK.

EMBL wishes to warn sponsors of EMBL conferences and courses of fraudulent schemes purporting to offer sponsorship opportunities on behalf of EMBL or affiliated with EMBL officials. One current scam campaign of which we are aware is conducted using the name ‘Judy Eastman’ (judy@gopcontact.a2hosted.com) and entails approaches to sponsors offering sponsorship opportunities on EMBL’s behalf. Please be kindly advised that all relevant communication regarding sponsorship of EMBL conferences, symposia and courses is handled by EMBL directly and is sent from an official EMBL account. EMBL does not work with any external providers on sponsorship acquisition.

Please also note that:

  • EMBL never provides attendee lists for purchase. Any offers of such are fraudulent.
  • EMBL will never call or email you to ask for your credit card details or to request a payment.
  • All payments are on invoice.

Suspicious communications purportedly from, for or on behalf of EMBL should be reported to EMBL at the following email address sponsorship@embl.de.
