Inspired Conference – Paris

INSERM partner Dr Eric Chevet organised an excellent conference on “Endoplasmic Reticulum Functions in Physiology and Pathology” in Paris on 2nd and 3rd Oct 2017.   Speakers included Peter Walter (UCSF) and Kazutoshi Mori (Kyoto University) who won the Lasker prize for their work on the Unfolded Protein Response. The role of IRE1 in cancer and neurodegenerative disesases was the focus of many of the talks. Overall it was an excellent meeting in a great location and a great success  – well done to Eric and the team from Aviesan for organizing such a great meeting with no registration fee enabling INSPIRED partners and young researchers to attend.
