A Biochemical Society event


Biological membranes and their component proteins and lipids are essential for life. At this 3-day event for early-career industrial and academic researchers, experts will use lectures, demonstrations and hands-on practicals on the functions of biological membranes and the application of biophysical techniques that aid our understanding of their components.


  • To provide information on the latest techniques that can be applied to study the protein and lipid components of membranes 
  • To provide an appreciation of the application of fundamental knowledge of membrane biology in the biotechnology sector

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this event delegates should be able to:
  • Explain the principles and the applications of advanced techniques to study membrane proteins and lipids
  • Carry out practical techniques (lipid nanoparticles, lipidomic analysis)
  • Apply their new knowledge and practical skills in their own laboratories/R&D facilities

Topics include but are not exclusive to:

  • SMALPs and biophysical application
  • Membrane proteins, GPCRs, protein-protein interaction
  • EPR and biophysical techniques, SMALP's
  • Single molecule spectroscopy on membrane proteins
