EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Molecular and Cell Biology of Membranes

21–23 May 2017
Heidelberg, Germany

This symposium focuses on recent advances  in understanding molecular functions of lipids in cells and in novel technologies to study cellular metabolism, transport, localization and function of lipids.


This timely symposium aims to investigate recent advancements concerning the lipid composition of various organelles, the characterization of specific intramembrane lipid-protein interactions, the regulation of lipid synthesis and transport and the development of tools such as photoactivatable and caged lipids.


       Intracellular lipid homeostasis

       Regulation of lipid synthesis and transport

       Protein-lipid interactions

       Functionalized lipids and novel tools to study lipids in cells
