EMBO Workshop: Current advances in membrane trafficking, Implications for polarity and diseases

(9 – 14 September 2014, Puerto Natales, Chile)

The 2014 “Current Advances in Membrane Trafficking: implications for cell polarity” EMBO Workshop in Llanuras de Diana, Chile will cover recent advances in organelle biology and membrane traffic, such as endoplasmic reticulum to Golgi traffic, sorting and exit from the Golgi, trafficking in polarized epithelia, endocytosis and signaling, neuronal membrane trafficking including microtubule based transport and its involvement in axon/dendrite formation, regeneration and neurodegeneration.

Recent major advances in these areas and other late-breaking discoveries will be covered at the workshop.

Date: 9 -14 September 2014

Venue: Puerto Natales, Chile


  • The Endoplasmic Reticulum and Golgi Transport Apparatus

  • Sorting and adaptors at the TGN
