CSH Asia Symposium: Membrane Protein Structure and Function

Membrane Protein Structure and Function
Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center
May 13-17, 2013

Organized by:
Carola Hunte, University of Freiburg, Germany
Brian Kobilka,
Stanford University, USA
Robert Nakamoto,
University of Virginia, USA
Nieng Yan, Tsinghua University, China
 
Cold Spring Harbor Asia (CSHA) is the Asia-Pacific subsidiary of New York based Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL). Inaugurated in 2010, CSHA is dedicated to promote international scientific exchange in the Asia-Pacific Rim by offering scientific conferences and advanced training courses with highest quality. CSHA is pleased to announce the Cold Spring Harbor Asia-Membrane Protein Structure and Function, which will be held at the Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center (CSHA鈥檚 exclusive venue) in Suzhou, China, located approximately 60 miles west of Shanghai.
 
The conference will begin at 7:00pm on the evening of Monday May 13, and will conclude after lunch on Friday May 17, 2013.

The conference will include eight oral sessions and one poster session. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. As a tradition of CSHL, ample social events throughout the conference will be provided in order to facilitating the cross-pollination of scientific ideas.
 
Major Topics:
1. Membrane receptors
2. Transporters
3. Channels
4. Membrane enzymes
5. Membrane complexes
6. Membrane shaping
7. Dynamic study of membrane and membrane proteins
8. Emerging technologies
