7th European Joint Theoretical/Experimental Meeting on Membranes

The development of biological membranes was one of the basic prerequisites for life on our planet as we know it today. Not only do membranes enable specific biochemical reactions to take place in tightly controlled subunits of cells, they are also responsible for communication between cells and transport in and out of the cell. Membranes are therefore a central "switching point" for a multitude of physiological processes and for this reason have also been the focus for the development of novel medical agents for some time.

The "European Joint Theoretical/Experimental Meeting on Membranes" (EJTEMM) is a workshop that has been organised for several years in various European cities (for example Helsinki, Krakow, Bratislava, Stockholm), which brings together top international researchers in the field of membrane biophysics. The aim of the event is to promote scientific exchange and, in particular, networking between experimental and theoretical working groups with this research focus, thus advancing the fundamental understanding of membranes to applications from the pharmaceutical/medical field. Following the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in early 2020, the EYTEMM has been postponed to 7-9 April 2021. Due to the pandemic development, the conference will be held entirely online.
