Time: 5:30 pm
day: Track A - Day 1 pm


  • Unravelling a new area of biology to help elucidate the functional relationship between certain PTMs and protein localization
  • Mapping the palmitoylome and palmitoylation gene interactome yields putative disease targets
  • Hypotheses of how dysregulation of palmitoylation and protein mislocalization drives disease
  • Developing a novel class of molecules to target this area, focusing on Batten Disease and leveraging these insights to drive further understanding of AD
