Protein-Lipid Nanostructures: From Domains to Devices
ProLiN2019 will operate in Bilbao, Spain, at the University of the Basque Country facility across from the Guggenheim museum, on July 25-27, 2019 (FlyerProLiN2019.pdf), following the EBSA Biophysics Congress in Madrid.
This workshop intends to explore the multifaceted nature of proteo-lipid nanostructures, from fundamental mechanisms of their self-assembly through intracellular functions to technological applications.
The ability of protein and lipids to self-assemble into functional nanostructures is fundamental for cellular life. Small, transitory proteo-lipid complexes are at the crossroads of metabolic and signaling pathways in the cell, they emerge to mediate membrane remodeling, control signal transduction, create transport carriers and more. Their capacity to respond to chemical and physical stimuli at a single molecule level has inspired various technological applications, including molecular sensing and nanopore sequencing.
