Prof. Li Min’s Research team attended KEY STONE SYMPOSIA – SELECTIVE AUTOPHAGY at Westin Miyako Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan

June 27, 2018

Prof. Li Min’s research team attended Keystone Symposia Conference on Selective Autophagy, held on 22-26 April 2018 at Westin Miyako Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan. Autophagy is a cellular metabolic process essential for degrading and recycling of long-lived proteins and organelles such as mitochondria through lysosomes in a highly selective manner. In 2016, Prof. Yoshinori Ohsumi was awarded Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discoveries of mechanisms for autophagy. The goal of this symposium is to integrate and discuss the latest information about the underlying mechanisms of selective autophagy and its implication in diseases.

Prof. Li Min and the members of CPDR presented 5 posters in this conference and actively involved in scientific discussions and knowledge sharing with renowned scientists globally. During the conference, they not only promoted their new findings in the translational research on autophagy and found collaborative partners, but also enjoyed the traditional Japanese culture and landscape.
