Subject: 06.03.26 ACS Interactions of Peptides and Proteins with Membrane Surface, Atlanta, GA
Interactions of Peptides and Proteins with Membrane Surfaces
March 26-30 in Atlanta, Georgia
We would like to let you know of an upcoming symposium on Interactions
of Peptides and Proteins with Membrane Surfaces at the Spring 2006
National American Chemical Society Meeting, March 26-30 in Atlanta,

A brief summary of the intent and purpose of the symposium is as

"The adsorption of peripheral proteins and peptides to membranes plays
an important role in many biological processes. The interplay of many
factors, including the alteration of the biophysical properties of the
macromolecules upon association and their consequent lateral
reorganization at the membrane surface, presents exciting challenges to
biophysicists and biochemists. Obtaining a molecular-level
understanding of the physico-chemical forces that drive and regulate
protein/membrane interactions therefore requires the integration of
diverse approaches. The goal of this symposium is to bring together
leading experimentalists and theorists in this field whose research
addresses these issues in novel and creative ways. Emphasis will be
placed on how theory and experiment may be combined to provide more
comprehensive and detailed information on protein/membrane systems than
is attainable from one perspective alone and, thus, lead to new models
and hypotheses."

It will be a full, 4-day symposium.  The list of confirmed speakers is
at the end of this message. Unfortunately, the limits set by ACS did
not allow us to invite everyone we had in mind.  However, additional
speakers will be selected from the submitted abstracts, so please
consider sending one.  And, of course, there will be plenty of room for

All the best,
