Protein-Lipid Nanostructures: From Domains to Devices

EBSA 2019 Satellite Meeting

July 25-27, 2019 / Bilbao, Spain

About

The ability of protein and lipids to self-assemble into functional nanostructures is fundamental for cellular life. Small, transitory proteo-lipid complexes are at the crossroads of metabolic and signaling pathways in the cell, they emerge to mediate membrane remodeling, control signal transduction, create transport carriers and more. Their capacity to respond to chemical and physical stimuli at a single molecule level has inspired various technological applications, including molecular sensing and nanopore sequencing. This workshop intends to explore the multifaceted nature of proteo-lipid nanostructures, from fundamental mechanisms of their self-assembly through intracellular functions to technological applications.
