Gordon Research Seminar — Mechanisms of Membrane Transport

22nd June 2019   -   23rd June 2019
Colby-Sawyer College, New London, United States


The Gordon Research Seminar on Mechanisms of Membrane Transport is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. The core focus of the meeting will be on novel approaches to structural biology, electrophysiology and biophysics in order to understand the transport of ions, small molecules, lipids and peptides across membranes. In particular, the meeting will focus on membrane protein dynamics and regulation of transport with allosteric modulators and lipids. The main objective of the meeting will be linking the structure and function of membrane transport to provide an overall picture of the biological and pathobiological processes these transporters are involved in, such as neurological and metabolic disorders. The seminar will include a Q&A session with experienced scientists, to provide essential guidance for young scientists in their career ambitions, whether in academia or industry.
