The Proteostasis Researchers in Canada (PRinCE) inaugural meeting was held at the University of Toronto on June 10-11, 2019. The aim of this first symposium was to establish a network of researchers working in the field of protein homeostasis in Canada and to promote collaborations between labs working on topics relevant to proteostasis. These include (but are not limited to) protein folding, protein trafficking, protein degradation, and neurodegenerative diseases – regardless of the model system.

The meeting was organized by:
Joerg Gsponer, University of British Columbia
