Workshop Details
Complexity in the Chemistry and Physics of Lipid Membranes (VIRTUAL)
06/22/2021 - 06/26/2021
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.


If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering.

With a workshop organizer's approval, students/post docs/lab members/retired senior scientists can register for $50 if they are not participating as a presenter. Please register at the normal rate and send an email to Sara Friedberg ( to let her know that you would like to participate at that rate. When you email her, please include the name of the workshop and the name of the workshop organizer who approved that participation rate. Thank you!
