Biological Membranes: Current Challenges
2005, July 31 -- August 19
This workshop is intended to discuss progress and challenges of all aspects
regarding our understanding of biological membranes from a soft condensed
matter perspective, both theoretically and experimentally.
Focus topics will include: mixtures, domains and proteins in
membranes, adhesion and membrane-cytoskeleton interactions, membrane fusion,
membrane pores, dynamics and hydrodynamics and interactions of membranes with
ions, polymers and proteins.
This session has received financial support from the following institutions: BBVA, Ayuntamiento de Benasque, Universitat de Barcelona and Universidad de Zaragoza.
