Experimental techniques for studying proteins and lipids in biological membranes

31 July 2018 - 01 August 2018

Aston University,
Aston Express Way,
Birmingham B4 7ET, United Kingdom

This two-day training event for early career researchers brings together academic and industrial experts. The course will focus on the function on biological membranes and on the techniques available to study their components in the context of biology and biotechnology. The event will comprise lectures, case study exercises and laboratory-based practical sessions.  Participants will leave the event with new knowledge and detailed protocols that will allow them to use techniques for studying components of biological membranes in their research.


Topics include:


  • Modelling membranes
  • Lipidomics
  • Lipid nanoparticles
  • Membrane protein crystallography
  • Electron Microscopy
