Biomembrane Days 2019

Membranes form the intricately shaped compartments of life. The Biomembrane Days are a biannual workshop that highlights recent advances in understanding the morphology and molecular organization of biomimetic and biological membranes. Central topics of the Biomembrane Days 2019 are the shaping and scaffolding of membranes by proteins, synthetic cells, giant vesicles, membrane-carbohydrate interactions, and nanoparticles. [more]

Microscopy Characterization of Organic-Inorganic Interfaces

The meeting is dedicated to microscopy of materials comprised of both organic and inorganic constituents in close proximity and is aimed at bringing together experts from both the life science and materials science communities to address this challenging and increasingly important topic. Different approaches such as the application of correlative microscopy solutions, low-voltage and cryogenic electron microscopy techniques, in-situ electron microscopy, methods for fast acquisition and many more are discussed during the meeting in the context of studying hybrid materials. This year’s Focus Lecture Series is dedicated to "Advances in imaging beam sensitive materials in the transmission electron microscope” and co-organized by Prof. Dr. Rafal E. Dunin-Borkowski, Ernst Ruska-Centre for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany. The Focus lectures will cover topics that include the use of novel imaging modes in both TEM and scanning TEM to image electron beam sensitive materials, as well as computational approaches for extracting quantitative information from both images and diffraction patterns. We hope that you will be pleased with our exciting programme and that it will stimulate creative thinking, resulting in new ideas and collaborations. [more]

Multiscale Motility of Biomolecular Machines

Biomolecular motors are the driving force behind many essential processes of life, they transport cargoes in cells, process the genetic information and power cell motility as well as developmental processes. Their functions are based on movements on many time and length scales, ranging from the sub-molecular to the cellular scale. This three-day symposium will highlight recent advances in the study of their function and their dynamics. The central topics of the meeting are Transport by cytoskeletal motors Information-processing by polymerases and ribosomes Molecular machines in cell movements and other processes [more]

Biomembrane Days 2014

Membranes form the intricately shaped compartments of life. The Biomembrane Days highlight recent advances in understanding the morphology and molecular organization of biomimetic and biological membranes. In 2014, the focus of the Biomembrane Days is on the four topical areas "Membranes and vesicles", "Adhesion", "Particles at membranes", and "Theory and simulations", which are strongly interrelated.
