EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Molecular and Cell Biology of Membranes

Event dateSunday 21 May - Tuesday 23 May 2017 SummaryThis symposium focuses on recent advances  in understanding molecular functions of lipids in cells and in novel technologies to study cellular metabolism, transport, localization and function of lipids.AimsThis timely symposium aims to investigate recent advancements concerning the lipid composition of various organelles, the characterization of specific intramembrane lipid-protein interactions, the regulation of lipid synthesis and transport and the development of tools such as photoactivatable and caged lipids.Topics

  • Intracellular lipid homeostasis
  • Regulation of lipid synthesis and transport
  • Protein-lipid interactions
  • Functionalized lipids and novel tools to study lipids in cells
