Patricia L. Clark, the Rev. John Cardinal O’Hara, C.S.C. Associate Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry, will be hosting the 8th Annual Midwest Conference on Protein Folding, Assembly and Molecular Motions. This one-day meeting of Midwestern academic laboratories reports recent research towards our understanding of proteins, the workhorse molecules of our cells that are responsible for functions as diverse as food digestion, energy metabolism, and directed transport. The meeting features talks and posters, presented primarily by graduate students and postdocs, and covers all aspects of protein research, including human diseases caused by protein malfunction.
