Membrane Imaging: Structure And Dynamics In Cells And Models

Who: University of Southern Denmark, Campusvej 55, 5230 Odense M
When: Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at 09:00 - 17:00

Lipid bilayer membranes constitute the essential physical barrier that separates cells from their surroundings and defines the internal organelles. Understanding structure formation in membranes at the nanometer scale as well as dynamics related to membrane conformation, transport and signaling are key topics. The interaction between the lipid component of membranes and embedded, peripheral or soluble proteins is often at the center of these studies. Recent technical developments in the imaging of membrane structure and dynamics are revolutionizing our understanding of biomembrane architecture and function. Equally important is the design of novel experiments with cells and model systems as well as advances in image analysis.

This workshop will gather experts in this field who will highlight advances in the imaging of biomembranes from a technical perspective and in terms of scientific progress gained from the techniques.

The workshop takes place from 9:00- 17:00. The final program will be announced before the meeting. In the meantime, please download our flyer.

To Register please use our Registration Form. Attendance to the workshop is limited to 50 participants and includes lunch and a coffee break. The final deadline for registration with an abstract for a talk is on Sunday November 4. If you wish to participate with poster we must have your abstract on November 16 at the latest, so we have time to make an abstract booklet. Please notice that November 16 is also the last day to register without a talk.
