This conference has been deferred to 2023 due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check back soon for the 2023 schedule.
The 2021 Gordon Conference on Molecular Membrane Biology will focus on the latest insights into organelle biogenesis and fuction, membrane trafficking, the connection to metabolism, and interorganelle communication. Invited talks will feature a broad range of topics including membrane biogenesis, protein sorting to organelles, metabolic regulation of organelle biogenesis, autophagy, protein and organelle quality control, lipid homeostasis, interorganelle contact sites, host-pathogen interactions, and the mechanism of organelle fission and fusion. The meeting will include sessions on novel techniques and their application in molecular membrane biology, and relevance for diseases. The conference is highly multidisciplinary, and will include research utilizing high-throughput genetics and proteomics, structural biology, super-resolution microscopy, cryo-EM and tomography, and biophysical approaches.
