More than 8,000 international scientists and clinicians will arrive in Montreal to share the latest advances in Immunology in the July heat. Researchers from 70 countries will arrive in the city on July 18 to attend the weeklong 12th International Congress of Immunology (ICI) and 4th Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS) Meeting.
"There will be over 5,000 presentations including diverse topics such as, asthma, stem cell and bone marrow transplantation, vaccines, arthritis and new therapies for HIV," says Dr. Emil Skamene, Congress President. "The caliber of the presentations is outstanding and the number of delegates indicative of the high interest in this important area of science. The link between science and better treatments for many chronic diseases has been achieved by the integration of the ICI and FOCIS programmes - a historical first for these two organizations. This will prove to be an extremely exciting and informative conference."
"This is meeting is the world’s largest and most prestigious gathering of immunologists," says Dr. Marianna Newkirk, Congress Scientific Program Chair. "It is the first time these two groups of basic and clinical immunologists will meet in Montreal. The city has done an excellent job of accommodating the needs of this conference - a task only a few cities in Canada can accomplish. We are confident the delegates will have a successful and enjoyable time in Montreal."

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
