Great trip to the 5th Nordic Autophagy Society (NAS) Conference Conference on “Autophagy mechanisms, physiology and beyond” in Copenhagen, Denmark! The Conference was held September 14th-16th 2022. Nikolai, Natalie, Julia, Christina and Juncal participated.
Nikolai gave a Keynote Lecture on “Elucidating the role of mammalian ATG8 proteins in autophagy by the use of cargo-based assays”. The other Keynote Speakers were Ivan Dikic, Wade Harper, and Claudine Kraft.
Natalie and Julia presented a poster on “Optimising the measurement of autophagic flux in primary, nonmalignant human epithelial prostate cells”
Christina presented a poster on “An investigation of the potential role of autophagy and autophagy-related proteins in melanoma development”
Juncal presented a poster on “The effects of anti-cancer drug-nanomaterials on autophagy in malignant and non-malignant cells”
Everyone received very useful feedback, enjoyed the interactions, and learned a lot from the Conference!
