World's top protein researchers meet in Denmark at the 2nd Copenhagen Bioscience Conferences (CBC): PTMs in cell signaling.

The first week of December, leading protein researchers met at the Comwell Borupgaard North of Copenhagen, at the second Copenhagen Bioscience Conferences (CBC): PTMs in cell signaling.  The conference focused on the role of post-translational modifications in cell signaling, cell cycle, cell metabolism, as well as their role in the development of cancer and other diseases.  

The conference was a great success, in terms of content and format, where junior and senior researchers exchanged knowledge and discussed the latest scientific findings, and networked across scientific disciplines.

During four intensive days, 15 of the world's most respected protein researchers gave lectures combined with open discussions and short presentations by young, talented researchers. A total of 190 researchers from 27 different countries participated in the conference.

The conference was arranged and organized by researchers from Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research at the University of Copenhagen in close collaboration with Novo Nordisk Foundation and was sponsored by the Novo Nordisk Foundation.
