Protein Folding, Evolution and Interactions                                                                                                          

Protein folding and assembly is a multidisciplinary area of research that addresses one of the fundamental problems in biology. Studies of the dynamic and energetic features of folding and assembly are key to understanding protein function, design and the origin of misfolding diseases. Consequently, few other fields have seen such a successful blend of physical and biological sciences; of experiment and theory.  Underpinning all of this work is our understanding of protein evolution. This international conference brings the foremost investigators in experimental and theoretical studies of protein folding assembly and evolution.
