VIII PosLatAm Course


VIII PosLatAm course:

Membrane Lipids, Transporters,

Channels…and all that crosstalk


The VIII PosLatam Course will take place in Salto, Uruguay on November  23-25, 2015. The Course will primarily focus on current ideas/topics in Membrane Biophysics, giving the attendees the opportunity to interact with worldwide experts and Latin-American students.


Main Topics:

Biophysical properties of lipid membranes

Structure/Function of membrane proteins

Protein/lipid interactions


 

The event will aim to create an interdisciplinary collaboration amongst the attendees by dedicating an entire session to poster presentations. Applicants are

 therefore encouraged to submit a one-page abstract, along with their application form, related to the main topics above.




Chair: R. Daniel Peluffo


Organizing Committee: Laura Coitiño, Sergio Pantano, Leonel Malacrida, Magdalena San Roman


Invited Speakers Include: Thomas Heimburg, Pablo Artigas, Luis Bagatolli, Gabriela Amodeo, Juliana Sakamoto YonedaLuis González Flecha, Gerardo Fidelio, Manuel Prieto, Susana Sánchez, JC. Gómez-Fernández, Jesus Romero, Alejandro Buschiazzo, Rosangela Itri, Anibal Disalvo and A. Costa-Filho.


Important information regarding the poster presentation:
Posters numbered from 1 to 34, 35 to 65 and 66 to 100 should be appended on November 26, 27 and 28, respectively.
