Biological membranes define and protect living cells. Proteins can open aqueous pores through these barriers. Such pores play critical roles in infection, parasitism, immunity and neurodegeneration. This meeting will showcase our current understanding of the structure and function of membrane pores, the medical significance of pores, and how pore-forming proteins can be used in nanotechnological applications.
Speaker biographies, abstracts, and recorded audio of the presentations is available below. Papers from the meeting are available in an issue of Philosophical Transactions B.
