Scientific Program


The Workshop will address various aspects within a multidisciplinary approach to the structural and functional characterization of membrane proteins as well as to their involvement in cellular processes, possibly with a systems level description. The applications of this knowledge in biotechnology and pharma industries will be also addressed.

The workshop will address the above issues by the organization of four minisymposia on the following topics:

1-Expression strategies for membrane proteins

2-Structural and functional aspects of membrane proteins

3-Membrane proteins in cellular processes

4-Impact of membrane proteins in biomedicine and pharmacology


The workshop will consist of plenary lectures, keynote lectures, and oral and poster presentations.
