Event details

Bringing together researchers with an interest in membrane biology.

The new Biomembranes@Southampton group has brought together a number of Southampton researchers who study different aspects of membrane biology (ion channels, receptors, trafficking, structure etc). This meeting is designed to bring our researchers and those from other institutes together to facilitate interactions and strengthen this important research area.

Registration is essential and has now closed.
