Membranes and Health: A Biophysics Workshop

Running as part of Biophysics Week for 2018, the Centre hosted a workshop on “Membranes and Health”. A range of invited speakers from around Australia and New Zealand, including some from Flinders university, discussed what is happening at the lipid bilayer from a range of perspectives. The researchers came from multiple disciplines, including physics, biology, chemistry, and medicine, which highlighted the multi-disciplinary of this field of research. The presentations nicely complemented each other, each looking at the lipid membrane from a slightly different perspective.

The day was well attended, with almost 40 guests, some 40% of whom visited from outside the university in order to attend. The Centre was excited to host this successful event, and many of the participants expressed a desire for a continuing discussion in the area. Stay tuned, most likely there will be another version coming next year!
