The 4th Prato Conference on Pore-Forming Proteins will be Monday, 24 September to Thursday, 27 September 2018 at the Monash University Prato Centre in Italy.

Come to Prato and explore the wonderful world of pore-forming toxins: Pore-forming proteins (PFPs) are molecules that self-assemble from a soluble form into oligomeric membrane spanning pores.  These molecules play diverse roles in processes such as immunity, bacterial pathogenicity, venom toxicity and developmental biology.  From a translational perspective, PFPs are also emerging as key molecules of utility in medical research, protection of agricultural crops from pests, DNA sequencing, and as tumour therapeutics.
