The 3rd Frankfurt Conference on Quality Control in Life Processes, taking place October 3-7, 2022 at Goethe University Frankfurt.

The meeting aims at bringing together scientists on all career stages to discuss mechanisms of cellular homeostasis and their impact on pathogenesis of diseases

This is the third in a series of conferences which aims to accelerate our understanding of quality control pathways and their interconnectivity, and to utilize this knowledge for the improved treatment of human diseases.

This year’s meeting features interdisciplinary sessions that cover topics including immunity and quality control, regulatory events and the interplay between autophagy, ubiquitin and proteostasis.
