The fascinating world of lysosomes

Scientific meeting to celebrate the 40-year research career of Emeritus Professor Michel Jadot

Catégorie : colloque/congrès
Date : 04/04/2024 08:30 - 04/04/2024 18:00
Lieu : UNamur, S01 auditorium
Organisateur(s) : NARILIS

The endosomal and lysosomal system is a complex and highly dynamic network of compartments involved in many processes, including subcellular trafficking, macromolecule degradation as well as signaling. As a biologist and expert in subcellular fractionation methods, Michel Jadot has made remarkable contributions to the understanding of lysosomal function/dysfunction and how lysosomal proteins are targeted to lysosomes.

Join us as we celebrate Michel's 40-year research career and delve into the fascinating world of lysosomes with our five guest speakers. This one-day meeting will serve as a platform to showcase the latest advancements in the field and foster scientific exchanges among researchers. It will reflect the diverse facets of lysosomal research, from basic research to therapeutic applications. The program will also be enriched by short talks and poster presentations by young scientists.

Registration and abstract submission are open!
