Proteinases and their inhibitors

38th Winter School on proteinases and their inhibitors
Feb. 24–26, 2021

The Winter School provides a forum primarily to young scientists (pre- or post-doc) allowing them to present their exciting and/or intriguing results for discussion with leading experts. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's program will be offered virtually, hosted by the ASBMB.

Founded by Hans Fritz and Vito Turk more than three decades ago, the Winter School has been providing a scientifically stimulating and outstanding open atmosphere to researchers on proteolytic enzymes. We are excited to be holding this valuable program virtually, making it accessible to scientists around the world.

The meeting covers diverse and vibrant fields of protease research, such as mechanistic studies on proteases in their molecular, cellular and organismic context. Sessions include proteolysis in cancer; proteolysis in neuro-signaling and neurodegeneration; proteolysis in blood coagulation; discovery of protease substrates; mechanisms and engineering of proteases, ligases, their substrates and inhibitors. Early career and established scientists will benefit from attending this event.

Speakers will be chosen from submitted abstracts. Abstracts not selected for oral presentation will be presented as posters (includes poster illustration and video presentation).

The online sessions will take place between 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. EST | 3–9:30 p.m. CET each day.
