Workshop Details
Complexity in the Chemistry and Physics of Lipid Membranes
06/20/2023 - 06/24/2023
Meeting Description:

Despite the important roles they play in cell membrane structure and function, lipid assemblies remain poorly characterized from a molecular perspective. Whether lipids mix or phase segregate and on what length scales, how membrane composition confers macroscopic properties such as membrane flexibility, curvature and permeability, and how membranes maintain asymmetric distributions of lipids across the bilayer are all questions that relate directly to how lipid assemblies sustain cellular integrity. This workshop will bring together leading investigators to discuss recent experimental and theoretical advances and identify pressing challenges in the field of lipid membrane chemistry and physics.

Notes:

IMPORTANT: Participants should be aware that this workshop runs Tuesday through Saturday. Discounted lodging rates begin on Monday, June 19th. If you are planning to arrive on Sunday, you can stay at the Hampton Inn (970-547-4120) next to the airport and come up to Telluride first thing on Monday. You will receive a discount at the Hampton Inn by saying you are a TSRC scientist.

We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering.

Telluride Science is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on Telluride Science's website. Feel free to contact Telluride Science's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
