2016 Program Preview
morning, June 24, 2016, the meeting's general sessions open with Keynote
Speaker, Randy Shekman, PhD, a Nobel laureate delivering a presentation
on Cell Membranes, Protein Export & Connections to Human Disease.
Human cells manufacture thousands of different proteins, such as insulin,
growth factors and antibodies, which are encapsulated into membrane-enclosed
packets called vesicles. Vesicles buzz around in the cell to many different
destinations, but some are delivered to the cell perimeter where they discharge
their contents to the exterior in an export mechanism conserved over a billion
years of evolution. What are the mechanics of this process? How is it
regulated? How can we exploit this ancient biological manufacturing and
transportation system for the sake of modern medicine? Understanding this
process and its regulation earned Randy Schekman a Nobel Prize in 2013 and has
allowed the biotech industry to exploit yeast as a production platform for the
secretion of human proteins such as recombinant insulin. That process now
supplies fully one-third of the insulin used by sufferers of diabetes
