Protein Structure, Function and Malfunction (PSFaM) Meeting

The organizing committee of the annual PSFaM conference made a difficult decision to cancel the meeting scheduled for June 2020 due to the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. We are following the current public health recommendations for social distancing and the avoidance of large gatherings.

Stay healthy and see you next year

8th Annual Meeting

June 15-16, 2020

Many labs in Western Canada conduct research on protein function and structure. The aim of this two-day Protein Structure, Function and Malfunction (PSFaM) Meeting is to provide a forum for up-and-coming researchers involved in the study of proteins and protein structure and function, be they graduate students, post-doctoral fellows or faculty, to present recent results, engage in discussions about their research, and meet their peers. The talks are given by internationally-renowned Keynote speakers, invited faculty, and trainees (trainee talks are chosen from submitted abstracts).

The title of the meeting is purposefully broad to allow wide participation.

While this meeting is predominantly aimed at the research community from Western Canadian provinces where travel to and from Saskatoon is not so difficult, other participants are heartily welcome.  Two days of oral presentations and poster sessions, mostly given by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, along with keynote lectures allow researchers to expand their professional network in an informal environment.
