Plenary Speakers

Alma L. Burlingame, UCSF,  will describe his work on the development of state of the art
methodologies in mass spectrometry to study O-GlcNAc modifications and the
GlcNAc/Phosphorylation interplay.

Brent Martin, Scripps Research Institute, will discuss novel approaches for large-scale
analyses of protein palmitoylation in mammalian cells.   
Robert J. Chalkley, UCSF, will describe innovative developments using database searches for analysis of PTMs.
Richard D. Cummings, Emory University School of Medicine,
will present his pioneering work on the roles of complex protein-bound glycans in cell adhesion, development and in and microbial or viral pathogenesis.
Stuart A. Lipton, Burnham Institute for Medical Research, will present his work on the molecular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases and stroke, including his discovery of the roles of protein S-nitrosylation.
Kevin L. Moore, Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, will describe his novel work on the enzymology, biology and functions of tyrosine sulfation.
Akhilesh Pandey, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, will share his finding and views with respect to PTMs and signaling, and recent developments in databases for system analyses of PTM biology.
Tony Pawson, Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute, will lecture on mechanisms that underlie intracellular signal transduction by modular protein domains.
Pierre Thibault, Universite de Montreal, will talk about high-Field Asymmetric waveform Ion Mobility Spectrometry (FAIMS)  and phosphorylation, and about his recent work on protein sumoylation.

Abstracts: Most of the talks will be selected from Abstracts submitted by participants, allowing discussion of the most recent and exciting developments within the field.  Final date to submit your abstract is September 15, 2010
