Heat shock in the springtime

A collaborative workshop dedicated to the discussion of heat shock factors in stress response, development, and disease was held on April 22–24, 2014 at the Université Paris Diderot in Paris, France. Recent years have witnessed an explosion of interest in these highly conserved transcription factors, with biological roles ranging from environmental sensing to human development and cancer.

We thank all the participants for their contribution. The workshop was sponsored by CNRS (PICS Program) and Fondation Jérôme Lejeune and was greatly facilitated by the excellent assistance of Geneviève Fournier, Xavier Jourdan (UMR71216), and Françoise Chevalier (UFR “Life Sciences”, Paris Diderot University). We also thank Déborah Bouvier and Aurélie de Thonel from the Mezger laboratory for their time and efforts toward making the workshop a success.
