Conference overview

The regulation of mRNA translation is a process required to maintain cell homeostasis, and its malfunction can lead to disease. In recent years, advances in high-throughput and microscopy methods have revealed findings that challenge hitherto established dogmas, such as extensive translation in “untranslated” regions of a transcript, pervasive initiation from non-AUG codons, heterogeneity and specialization of the ribosome or specialized roles for ‘general’ translation factors. The influence of epitranscriptomics and physical transitions in translation, or the molecular mechanisms underlying ribosome quality control are just examples where rapid progress is impacting our view of translation.

It is also now clear that the mRNA is covered with RNA binding proteins (RBPs) that control its fate, some of which have dual functions as enzymes, revealing connections with metabolism that we still need to understand. Thus, translation cannot be seen anymore as an isolated process, but as one highly connected with other steps of gene expression and finely dependent on cellular context. Advance on these aspects will be featured, as well as the role of translation regulation in diseases as diverse as cancer, metabolic or neurological disorders.

Warning

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 sponsoring@embl.de.
