About the Workshop
Exocytosis and endocytosis are fundamental biological processes that are essential for membrane trafficking for all eukaryotic cells as well as the specialized secretory functions of many cell types, from immune cells to neurons. In the past, our understanding of exocytosis and endocytosis have been greatly advanced by a combination of approaches, namely genetics, cell biology, electrophysiology, biochemical reconstitution and biophysics, including single-molecule techniques. However, the increasingly sophisticated and specialized methods in one sub-field make it increasingly more difficult to stay informed about key developments in others. This EMBO workshop aims to bring together neuroscientists, biochemists, cell biologists and biophysists to create an interdisciplinary forum for exchanging results, ideas, and perspectives.
