Faraday Discussion: Peptide-Membrane Interactions
7-9 September 2020
The meeting will cover all aspects of how peptides as macromolecules interact with membranes; from basic theoretical considerations embodied in computational models, wet experimental studies of model systems through to living membranes and synthetic biology applications. Thus, the questions we will address bridge the divides between aspects of the fundamental physical chemistry of macromolecular polyelectrolytes and cell biology as well as drug development and synthetic biology.
We believe that a FD meeting will be a great format to consolidate and develop this entire field, with the unique dialectical emphasis of the Faraday meeting promoting a level of focus on key questions whilst allowing a sense of context to be retained that other meetings do not meet.
We would like strongly to encourage you to submit a paper for consideration for presentation at the meeting. The nature of the meeting format requires pre-circulation of the papers to the participants for discussion at the meeting. We are keen, therefore, to ensure the highest quality of science is represented at the meeting. Following the meeting the papers and the discussion will be collected together into a single volume (as with previous meetings eg: https://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/ebook/978-1-84973-688-6)
Please note that the deadline for submission of Oral Abstracts is Monday 2nd December 2019.
