Sunday and Monday, March 10-11, 2013, the second Missouri Symposium in Biophysics will highlight studies of membrane proteins. The 1.5-day Symposium features presentations by leaders in characterization of membrane protein structure and function.
- Douglas Rees (Cal Tech, HHMI; channel & transport proteins, )
- Frederick Sachs (SUNY Buffalo; mechanosensitive channels)
- Kenton Swartz (NINDS/NIH; voltage-gated ion channels)
- Rachelle Gaudet (Harvard; temperature & pain sensors)
- Linda Randall (University of Missouri; transmembrane protein translocation)
- Gerald Hazelbauer (University of Missouri; chemoreceptors & Nanodiscs)
- Tzyh-Chang Hwang (University of Missouri; cystic fibrosis channel protein)
The Symposium begins with a poster session and reception on Sunday evening the 10th, followed by a full day of sessions on Monday, March 11th.
Attendees are encouraged to present a poster in any area of biophysics. Student poster presenters receive a complimentary registration. Awards will be given for best poster by an undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral researcher. There will be ample time for interaction among participants, including speakers.
