1st POEM WORKSHOP ON THE PHYSICS OF EXCITATORY MEMBRANES

Fluctuations and Electromechanics of Artificial Membranes, Cells and Nerves

The Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen

August 29 - August 31, 2016

Organizers: Thomas Heimburg (Membrane Biophysics Group) and Niels Bohr International Academy
co-funded by the Villum Foundation.
The workshop will cover electromechanical behavior and flexoelectricity of biomembranes, channels in membranes, anesthesia, fluctuations, propagation phenomena in excitatory membranes, cells and neurons - and related phenomena. The purpose is to bring together a group of scientists that investigate new and alternative ways of thinking about the physics of biological membrane and cell function.
