Salk Institute for Biological Studies - 2022 Salk Post-translational Regulation of Cell Signaling Meeting

2022 Salk Post-translational Regulation of Cell Signaling Meeting

2022 Salk Post-translational Regulation of Cell Signaling Meeting

When: June 27 – 30, 2022

Registration Deadline: Friday, June 10, 2022
Abstract Deadline: Friday, May 20, 2022

The year 2020 marked the 40th anniversary of the discovery of the first tyrosine kinases, and the 2022 Salk Post-translational Regulation of Cell Signaling Meeting, which will be held June 27-30, 2022 at the Salk Institute, La Jolla, California, has been organized as an occasion to belatedly celebrate the 40th anniversary and all the progress that has been made in understanding the role of tyrosine phosphorylation in signaling and disease, and in the development of selective tyrosine kinase inhibitor drugs (currently 60 TKIs have been approved!). The 2022 meeting will start at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 27 and consist of long talks by invited speakers (see the great list of speakers), with a few short talks selected from abstracts. Please save the date and plan to attend. Registration is now open, and will include a virtual access option. We look forward to seeing you in La Jolla in June.
