EMBO Workshop: Molecular neurobiology

Tue, 08 May 2018 – Sat, 12 May 2018

Novel biophysical tools, combined with advanced cell biology, imaging and 'in vivo' methods have brought about a revolution in molecular neurobiology. This EMBO Workshop will bring together experts working at the interfaces between structural biology, biophysics and neurobiology. Particular focus is placed on processes that happen at or close to the cell membrane, where information is transduced by sophisticated mechanisms such as receptor-ligand interactions and channel properties. Given its cross-disciplinary nature, this EMBO Workshop will present excellent opportunities for discussion, forging new collaborations, comparing state-of-the art methods and combining views from different scientific perspectives. It will thus set the stage for a collaborative future in molecular neurobiology.
