On December 4 PhyLife hosted the first Membrane Imaging Workshop

On Tuesday December 4th PhyLife hosted the first Membrane Imaging workshop. We would like to thank the speakers and participants for a fantastic day with a lot of interesting membrane science. We hope to see you again in the future. Additionally, we would like to thank SDU Imaging for supporting the workshop financially. 

Invited Talks:

  • Peter Jönson, Physical Chemistry, Lund University, Lund, Sweden: Manipulating and studying membrane-associated molecules using hydrodynamic forces.
  • Arindam Ghosh*, Georg-August-University, Göttingen, Germany: Metal-Induced Transfer and its application to membrane science.
  • Dimitrios Stamou, University of Copenhagen: Membrane curvature, a non-stochastic regulator of protein localization, structure and function.
  • Rumiana Dimova, Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Potsdam, Germany: Wetting, budding and tubulation.
  • Jesper Nylandsted, Danish Cancer Society research Center, Copenhagen, Denmark: Single-cell wound healing in cancer cells.
  • Poul Martin Bendix, Niels Bohr Institute, Copenhagen University, Denmark: Dynamics of proteins in isolated plasma membranes. 
 *Arindam Ghosh substituted for Jörg Enderlain who were unable to make it to the workshop due to unforseen circumstances. We would like to thank Arindam for coming with very short notice and hope to see Jörg Enderlain at PhyLife another time.

Additional Talks:

  • Stefan Vogel, University of Southern Denmark: Liposome fusion cascades programmed by DNA and PNA
  • Jannik Bruun Larsen, Danish Technical University: Single liposome fluorescent imaging reveal heterogeneous pegylation of drug delivery liposomes.
  • Alice Dupont Juhl, University of Southern Denmark: Ultrastructure of Endo-Lysosomes during Cholesterol Efflux studied by Combined Fluorescence and Cryo-Soft X-ray Tomography.
  • Theresa Louise Boye, Danish Cancer Society Research Center: Annexin A4 and A6 induce membrane curvature and constriction during cell membrane repair.
  • Guillermo S Moreno-Pescador, Copenhagen University: Exploiting plasmonic membrane fusion to understand membrane protein dynamics.
