About the Conference

The highly conserved mechanisms of quality and metabolic control are playing crucial role for maintaining healthy cellular environment absolutely essential for cellular growth and survival from lower to higher organisms. Henceforth, dysregulation of the vital cellular quality check can perturb metabolic balance that in turn causes multiple metabolic disorders and degenerative diseases.

The proteostatic and homeostatic Autophagy-lysosomal pathway, proteasomal machinery and energy-metabolism hub mitochondrial systems are playing pivotal role in ensuring proper cellular functions and quality control. All these vital pathways are involved in life-threatening disease. Therefore, targeting them for therapeutic purposes will expand the initiatives to cure the so far incurable diseases.

This International Conference will highlight the evolution of the quality and metabolic control fields across multiple species and will provide an overall 360-degree view of the unique fundamental molecular and patho-physiological angles that will broaden the chance of promising therapeutic aiming of diseases with deregulated quality and metabolic control.
