RTG reloc - International Symposium

Dynamic protein localization - driving proteomic plasticity

September 7/8, 2023

Venue: Department of Chemistry, lecture hall III, Greinstraße 6, 50939 Cologne

The international symposium "Dynamic protein localization driving proteomic plasticity" was organized by the PhD students of the Research Training Group (RTG reloc) located at the University of Cologne. Our interdisciplinary research, bridging chemistry, biochemistry and cell biology, focusses on mechanisms driving and controlling (re)localization events, and their functional and physiological consequences. With our two-day international symposium, our PhD students had the opportunity and the ambition to bring experts in the field of protein localization events to Cologne. The result was two exciting days of discussing research, results, and methods, as well as establishing new scientific connections.

We are very happy with having been able to welcome the speakers and all other participants to Cologne!
