🇨🇦 Membranes Beyond Workshop


Biomembranes are essential to create life as they provide the containment of a living cell. Their structure and interaction with biological molecules is investigated for decades leading to a continuously growing understanding of the processes and function of these basic biological systemes.

To highlighting recent approaches and developing ideas in research on membrane structure and interaction the International Workshop Membranes Beyond is organized at McMaster University in Hamilton ON, Canada, on July 2-4, 2018. International experts working in the field will review recent developments and discuss future perspectives. All relevant topics related to research with biomembranes will be tackled. Topics include

  • Membrane phase behaviour
  • Membrane mixtures and rafts
  • Membrane dynamics
  • Lipid-peptide interaction
  • Lipid protein interaction
  • Simulation of membrane systems
  • Drug delivery systems
  • Membranes and signalling
  • Membrane fusion

“The workshop is also organized in honour of the 60th birthday of John Katsaras and the achievements of him and his co-workers in this field within the last decades.”

Make sure to get in touch with us prior to the event so as to secure a one-to-one meeting with Giovanna FRAGNETO, invited speaker at the event, and Yuri GERELLI, who will also attend the workshop… and/or follow us on your favorite social media:
