Molecular Basis for Biological Membrane Organization
Organizer(s): Kai Simons, Ira Mellman and Petra Schwille
Date: January 12 - 17, 2008
Location: Big Sky Resort, Big Sky, MT, USA
Supported by the Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
The organization of cell membranes is a hot topic and the field is characterized by controversies regarding how proteins and lipids interact and how membranes become compartmentalized to form platforms that function in signaling, trafficking and cell polarization. Lipids and membranes are central to understanding the pathogenesis of important diseases such as atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s Disease, AIDS, and influenza. Major questions revolve around how lipids interact with other lipids and, most importantly, how proteins and lipids interact. The goal of this meeting is to bring together scientists from biochemistry, structural biology, lipidomics, molecular cell biology and biomedicine to discuss major issues in the field. The multidisciplinary character of the meeting will promote discussion and the program is designed to stimulate exchange among investigators who would not otherwise interact.
