3rd IASBS Symposium in Biological Sciences
Protein Folding and Stability

Zanjan, Iran
November 2-4, 2017

The department of biological sciences at IASBS holds annual symposia on frontiers of different biological subjects. Protein folding and stability is involved in regulating activity of proteins within a cell. It also plays an important role in specific cellular processes including protein localization, cell cycle regulation, and immune response. Diseases such as cystic fibrosis, many allergies, and some types of cancer are arisen from incorrect folding of proteins. On the other hand, misfolded proteins that escape cellular control mechanisms form aggregates inside and (more commonly) outside the cell. Formation of protein aggregates has been associated with increasing number of diseases including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, the spongiform encephalopathies, and type II diabetes.
According to the above-mentioned importance of the field, the theme of our 3rd symposium in biological sciences will be "Protein Folding and Stability" and we attempt to provide a forum for the presentation of the newest findings in this area on November 2-3, 2017. Outstanding national and international scientists are invited to provide lectures.
We are also glad to be the host of 30th annual meeting of "Biophysical Chemistry Laboratory (BCL)" on November 4, 2017. BCL is supervised by Professor Ali Akbar Moosavi- Movahedi, Professor of Biophysical Chemistry at the Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics (IBB), University of Tehran, Iran.
We hereby welcome all of you who are interested in the subject to attend this symposium and also the 30th BCL anniversary and share with us your research, enthusiasm, and valuable presence. Both experimental and theoretical approaches are encouraged and welcomed.
