About the Workshop

Workshop illustration

Lipids were center stage in biochemical research before the DNA revolution. Then they slowly disappeared. The attention was moved to the proteins that reside in cell membranes. Now the lipids are coming back. Their renaissance is promoted by superior analytical platforms that have unraveled the diversity of the lipid world. Screens of different cellular functions are consistently identifying genes that affect lipids and thus this neglected crowd has to be included in the analysis. Lipids are emerging as modulators of protein function, an increasing number of cellular functions are localized to cell membranes involving both lipids and proteins, the cell membranes themselves are revealing novel dynamic material properties that are indispensable for cellular signaling and metabolism. One beauty of this field is that it is powered by multi-disciplinarity. The program will combine biochemical, biophysical and cell biological approaches to lipid function and metabolism and move from basic science to cover lipids in health and disease. By trying to creatively present the attractiveness and breadth of the field, this EMBO Workshop will confront the speakers and the participants with the exciting challenges ahead.

Abstract guidelines

Abstracts should contain information on the topic that will be discussed at the meeting. Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words.

Poster specifications

Poster boards are 120x150cm (landscape) and thus fit A0 posters in both directions.

Travel grants

A limited number of travel grants are available for participants. Applicants do not need to apply separately for travel grants for this event but should indicate on the registration form if they wish to be considered for a travel grant. Selection of awardees is handled directly by the organizer who will notify all eligible participants. More information is available at EMBO Travel Grants' page.

Child care grant

EMBO Courses and Workshops offers grants to offset additional child care costs incurred by participants or speakers when participating at any EMBO Courses and Workshop funded meeting. Eligible costs include fees for a caregiver or child-care facility, travel costs for a caregiver, or travel costs for taking the child to the meeting etc. Please indicate on the registration form whether you would like to be considered for the grant.
