January 10: Submit an abstract for the ASBMB Deuel Lipid Conference
The ASBMB Deuel conference, taking place March 1-4 in Monterey, California, is a must-attend event for leading lipid researchers.
“We would like to bring in people who may not have had their teeth in lipid metabolism, but who have found a way to study lipids. In many cases, this is where you get the most exciting, unusual and quirky presentations, and it can spark collaborations that might not have happened otherwise, ”said co-organizer Russell DeBose- Boyd at ASBMB Today.
This year’s theme is “Place, Location, Location: How Lipid Trafficking Affects Cell Signaling and Metabolism”. In an interview, co-organizer Arun Radhakrishnan explains it this way: “In recent years, we have started to better understand the mechanisms of lipid trafficking. We thought it would be great to have a meeting focused on this aspect and what this new knowledge is telling us about cell signaling and metabolism.
The early bird registration deadline is December 6. Abstracts are accepted until January 10. Regular registration ends February 1st. See the program.

April 26: Abstract deadline for the ASBMB O-GlcNAc meeting
This conference, to be held in person in Athens, Georgia, will discuss the myriad of roles that modification of the O-GlcNAc protein has in the regulation of nuclear and cytosolic proteins. It will bring together researchers from various fields to share their research, tools and experience in the biology of O-GlcNAc. The organizers are Gerald Hart and Lance Wells, both of the University of Georgia. Learn more.
July 21-24: Evolution and basic process in gene expression
Come to a venue in person in the summer of 2022: The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the most recent information on the cis regulatory code, how the cis regulatory information is read by transcription factors, pathways. signaling and other proteins, how cell diversity is created during development, and how we can study this problem using advanced genomic technology and computational methods.
The meeting will simultaneously examine the problem from an evolutionary perspective: how the elements of cis regulation evolve, how regulatory variation affects gene expression and phenotypes, how these changes shaped development and parallel evolution, and how noise affects the regulatory circuits and their evolution.
Stay tuned for summaries and registration deadlines.
August 14-18: Mass spectrometry in health and life sciences
This five-day conference will be an international forum for discussion on the remarkable advances in cell biology and human proteins revealed by ever more innovative and powerful mass spectrometry technologies. The conference will juxtapose sessions on methodological advances with sessions on the roles that these advances play in solving problems and seizing opportunities to understand the composition, dynamics and function of the cellular machinery in many biological contexts. In addition to celebrating these successes, we also intend to articulate the urgent and unmet needs and unresolved issues that will lead the field into the future. Registration and abstract submission begins November 1. Abstracts are due May 16. Find out more.
28 Sep – Oct 2: Epigenetic regulation and genome stability
Save this date! Most epigenetics and chromatin meetings focus on transcription, while most genome integrity meetings pay little attention to epigenetics and chromatin. This Seattle conference will fill this gap to link researchers interested in epigenetic and chromatin regulations with those interested in genome integrity. Learn more.
Call for proposals for virtual scientific events
The ASBMB provides members with a virtual platform to share scientific research and achievements and to discuss emerging topics and technologies with the BMB community.
The ASBMB will manage the technical aspects, market the event to tens of thousands of contacts, and present the digital event live to a distant audience. Additional tools such as polls, Q&A, chat rooms, and post-event Twitter chats can be used to facilitate maximum engagement.
Seminars generally last one to two hours. A workshop or conference can be longer and even span several days.
Potential organizers can submit proposals at any time. Decisions are usually made within four to six weeks.
