Membrane Trafficking Seminars

'Cellular membrane traffic produces incredibly dynamic structures, in continuous communication with each other. This traffic is brought about by beautifully coordinated actions of specialized protein and lipid complexes that harness fundamental processes of membrane remodelling and cargo capture. In the past few years, new techniques and systems, together with interdisciplinary thought,  are leading to innovative ideas and completely new paradigms in the field of membrane traffic. This seminar series is an opportunity to bring such exciting new ideas to the community and boost constructive  discussions on the future of membrane traffic.' - Felix Campelo, Francesca Bottanelli and Ishier Raote (Organisers).
