The phosphorylation level of proteins is balanced by the activities of protein kinases and phosphatases, which are integral components in many signal transduction pathways. The principal aim of the meeting is to gather the leaders of these separate fields and to provide a synthesis of ongoing cutting-edge science to young investigators and students. Specific themes include the structure, function, and physiological importance of protein phosphatases, with special emphases on the most recent approaches of innovative therapeutic targeting of protein phosphatases in human diseases.
