Dutch Protein Aggregation Network (DPAN)

10 July 2023

Welcome on the website of the Dutch Protein Aggregation Network, which aims to bring together scientists working in the Netherlands on research into protein aggregation, in particular in context of human diseases. As a first step towards this aim, we will organize an initial symposium in November 2023.

About us

The organizers behind this initiative all study disease-related protein aggregation, but take different experimental approaches to do so. One goal of the DPAN network will be to offer and support an interdisciplinary perspective, while also facilitating and encouraging future collaborations across the boundaries of disciplines and disease types.

About the planned symposium

As a starting point of the DPAN network, we will organize a national symposium in November 2023. The precise data and other details are still forthcoming, which will be updated on this page as it becomes available.


For questions about this initiative and the symposium, please feel free to contact Patrick van der Wel or any of the other organizers.
