Supported and tethered lipid bilayers have emerged as one of the most popular mimics of the cell membrane. While initially serving as model systems .. Read more in research aimed at gaining fundamental insights about biophysical and physicochemical properties of cellular membranes, they have in recent years gained increasing acceptance in the context of studying complex biological processes as well as in various pharmaceutical and diagnostic applications. The aim of the TETHMEM WE-Heraeus seminar is to provide an exchange platform for scientists of various backgrounds and career levels working with lipid assemblies as cell membrane mimics. To exploit the full potential of these lipid membranes, we will discuss the latest progress in the production and characterization ofthese complex molecular architectureswith current state-of-the-art and newly developed biophysical techniques. This will be followed by a survey of potential applications in fundamental biology, but also in diagnostics and drug discovery. Leading international experts will review the present status of supported and tethered membranes as well as their applications in keynote and invited talks. Participants are invited to present their current research in poster sessions.
