“Biophysics of Amyloids and Prions”

May 25-26, 2014, Naples, Italy.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we kindly invite you to the “Biophysics of Amyloids and Prions” meeting, which will be held in Naples (May 25-26, 2014).
The meeting aims to cover the emerging field of biophysical approaches to understanding amyloid and prion formation, and deciphering the structural basis for self-propagating protein conformations. It is a satellite of the Prion2014 meeting that will be held in Trieste, Italy the following week. (mettere il link al meeting di Trieste. Contattare Ekaterina Kochegurova, ekaterina.kochegurova@sissa.it ed il prof. Giuseppe Legname, legname@sissa.it).

We are confident that the “Biophysics of Amyloids and Prions” meeting will promote stimulating scientific exchange, in an enjoyable and attractive location.
We look forward to your massive and enthusiastic participation, essential to the success of the event.
