Membrane trafficking from cell to organism

Membranes are fundamental to our understanding of cells. Cells are both surrounded by membranes and divided internally by membranes to create organelles with specialised contents and functions. However, this then presents the challenge of how to transport material between these different membrane-bound compartments. Work in recent years has increasing shed light on the molecular mechanisms that underlie the diverse processes involved in forming vesicles, loading cargo, directing motors and controlling fusion and release, but many questions still remain. The importance of this topic to human health and disease is also becoming increasingly apparent.

This conference will cover any and all aspects of membrane trafficking and dynamics including:

Vesicles: formation, transport and fusion
Endocytosis and exocytosis
Cytoskeleton, motors and membranes
Organelle structure and function
Membrane trafficking and disease
Cargo transport
Microscopy methods for studying membrane trafficking
Membrane trafficking and development
+ show speakers and program
