The IUBMB Focused Meeting on Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases

The 13th International Symposium of Aminoacyl-tRNA Synthetases (AARS2023)

AARS2023 is an international conference that brings together ~200 scientists from all over the world to advance the frontiers of research with respect to the essential functions of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (AARSs) in protein synthesis and translation fidelity and their relationship to disease caused by human pathogens or by genetic mutations in the human population. Our research community includes scientists, clinicians, and representatives from the pharmaceutical industry that will meet to reveal new knowledge regarding the origin of genetic coding, the structure and mechanism of the translational apparatus, the diverse roles of AARSs in protein synthesis, as well as non-translational functions and physiological regulation in human disease. The 13th AARS meeting will be held at The Oakwood resort in Grand Bend, Ontario, Canada from June 4th to June 9th, 2023.

The AARS2023 international conference will be held at the Oakwood Resort in Grand Bend, Ontario, Canada.

To maximize scientific interactions, the resort has > 120 rooms to accommodate all attendees including lodging and meals. The Oakwood is situated on the shores of Lake Huron, a location that will provide an ideal environment to facilitate rich intellectual exchanges on cutting-edge research at the forefront of basic biomedical science, drug discovery, and biotechnology development.

Grand Bend is in close vicinity of major research institutions, including our own (The University Western Ontario) many others in the region, ensuring ease of access to local, regional, and international attendees with 3 international airports within 1 hour (YXU in London, Canada) or 2.5 hours of driving distance (YYZ in Toronto or DTW in Detroit).

The resort campus includes two state-of-the-art auditoriums with a capacity of ~200 people at one time providing ample space for lectures, poster sessions, and open discussions. The Grand Bend shore-line community offers picturesque beaches, golfing, and water sports as well as shops and restaurants that are all within easy walking distance of the conference location to enrich the overall experience.
