LINXS workshop: Dynamics of membranes and their constituents
Recent years have seen strong research efforts on the lipid component of biological membranes. While many studies have been focused on the membrane structure, the dynamics of such systems are crucial for the function of the membrane including membrane bound proteins. With this Dynamics workshop, our goal is to bring together leading experts in the field of membrane dynamics, with a particular focus on neutrons and X-rays, but also complementary techniques including NMR, single molecule spectroscopy and computer modeling. The workshop is arranged by The Lund Institute of Advanced Neutron and X-ray Science (LINXS).
Time and place: September 12, 2018, 12:00 – September 14, 2018, 13:00.
The conference will take place at two different venues. The first day, September 12, will be at the Palaestra auditorium (Paradisgatan 4) while the remaining two days (September 13-14) will be at Kulturen Auditoriet (Tegnérplatsen 6).
