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
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
This three-day training event for early career researchers brings together academic and industrial experts. This interactive workshop, delivered by experts in the field, will give a broad understanding of membrane biology and the latest biophysical techniques to study their lipid and protein components. The event will comprise lectures, case studies, hands-on practicals and Q&A sessions. Participants will leave the event with new knowledge and detailed protocols that will allow them to apply new techniques to their own research.
