Dynamics of membranes and their constituents

Event Dates: 2018-09-12 to 2018-09-14   

We would like to draw your attention to the Workshop – Dynamics of membranes and their constituents, organized by The Lund Institute of Advanced Neutron and X-ray Science (LINXS) Wednesday, September 12, 2018 12:00  to Friday, September 14, 2018 13:00. 
 
Recent years have seen strong research efforts on the lipid component of biological membranes. While many studies have been focused on the membrane structure, the dynamics of such systems are crucial for the function of  the membrane including membrane bound proteins. With this Dynamics workshop, our goal is to bring together leading experts in the field of membrane dynamics, with a particular focus on neutrons and X-rays, but also complementary techniques including NMR, single molecule spectroscopy and computer modeling.
