Scientific discussion meeting organised by Dr Julie Aspden, Dr Maria Barna, Dr William Faller, and Professor Anders Lund.

Ribosomes were thought to be homogeneous, passively translating mRNA into proteins. However, recent work has discovered that the composition of ribosomes is highly heterogeneous and that different ribosome populations can regulate the translation of specific mRNAs. This meeting will discuss latest advances, covering all types of ribosome heterogeneity in a variety of organisms and systems, including impact on human disease.

The schedule of talks, speaker biographies and abstracts will be available soon. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B
