The Protein Phosphatases Conference


The protein phosphatase conference will be held from December 11 to 15, 2022. Its features the most current work on the structure, regulation, and function of protein phosphatases, paying particular attention to their roles in human disease and their validation as drug targets . It highlights major achievements, and new approaches, to generate conduits to integrate and complement phosphatase knowledge with other fields of research and to fuel the interest of industrial and academic groups in drugging phosphatases.

A primary goal of the meeting is to refresh and renew the field through the engagement and development of new and young scientists—especially junior faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, women, and minorities—and facilitate ties and collaboration between the FASEB and JAPPR phosphatase research communities.

The conference brings together established scientists in the phosphatase field, established scientists from other fields, and trainees and new investigators who are interested in learning more about phosphatases. The range of expertise varies widely from basic science to translational and clinical studies, including but not limited to biochemistry, cell biology, structural biology, human pathology, medicinal chemistry, neuroscience, and immunology.

Due to the re-emergence of phosphatases as druggable targets, an increasing number of phosphatase-focused small businesses and programs in medium and large pharma have been established. Thus, in addition to academic scientists, significant participation of scientists from industry is expected and desired.
