The Membrane Proteins in Health and Disease Meeting will be held Wednesday, April 11, 2018 to Sunday, April 15, 2018 at The Banff Centre located in the beautiful mountain setting of Banff, Alberta, Canada. The meeting is being organized by the Canadian Society for Molecular Biosciences and the Membrane Protein Disease Research Group at the University of Alberta. The theme of the meeting is “Membrane Proteins in Health and Disease” and will feature sessions on membrane structural biology, membrane protein biogenesis and folding, molecular events in membrane transport physiology, ion transport and pH regulation, membrane embedded enzymes, and membrane proteins as therapeutic targets.
Satellite meetings will also be held on April 10, 2018 with the topics focused on pH regulation at the membrane surface and novel approaches to membrane protein structure. There will also be lectures invited from submitted abstracts (~10) and poster sessions featuring presentations by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Travel awards are available for trainees and prizes will be given for the best posters. This meeting typically attracts an informed group of ~250 participants interested in membrane protein structure, function, biogenesis, and physiology. It is a very popular meeting, which is limited to 250 participants, so mark your calendars!
The organizing committee is working hard to put together a fantastic meeting and we hope to see you there! Please help us spread the word about the conference and circulate to your colleagues and within your institution the Membrane Proteins in Health and Disease 2018 Banff Conference Poster.
