Keystone symposium on neurological disorders of intracellular trafficking


I’ve just arrived at the Keystone resort, high in the Rocky mountains, to attend the Keystone symposium on neurological disorders of intracellular trafficking. Should be a fascinating conference, with lots of great speakers. I am presenting some of our data on LRRK2 and autophagy on Thursday morning.


Guidelines on monitoring autophagy


Along with a large number of other authors, Dr Claudia Manzoni and myself are included in the most recent edition of the guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy – a consensus document from the autophagy research community. This is a mammoth paper, over 200 pages long (8 pages of which list the authors!), but is a very useful guide to the use and misuse of assays for autophagy.
