Workshop Details
Complexity in the Chemistry and Physics of Lipid Membranes
07/09/2018 - 07/13/2018
Meeting Description:

Despite the important roles they play in cell membrane structure and function, lipid assemblies remain poorly characterized from a molecular perspective. Whether lipids mix or phase segregate and on what length scales, how membrane composition confers macroscopic properties such as membrane flexibility, curvature and permeability, and how membranes maintain asymmetric distributions of lipids across the bilayer are all questions that relate directly to how lipid assemblies sustain cellular integrity. This workshop will bring together leading investigators to discuss recent experimental and theoretical advances and identify pressing challenges in the field of lipid membrane chemistry and physics.


IMPORTANT: Festival lodging rates will go into effect on the night of Friday the 13th. To avoid the rate increase, you should depart on the 13th. If your flight out of Montrose does not leave until Saturday the 14th, TSRC suggests eating dinner in Telluride on the night of the 13th, taking the shuttle to Montrose after dinner, and staying at the Hampton Inn next to the airport. You will receive a discount at the Hampton Inn by saying you are a TSRC scientist.
