The Winter School "Bio-membranes, Pharmacology and Therapeutics" is a thematic school organized by researchers and teacher-researchers of the Université Côte d'Azur. It is motivated by the fact that the lipids and proteins that make up cell membranes are major pharmacological and therapeutic targets. This training course provides in-depth knowledge of the main components of cell membranes (proteins and lipids) and introduces the main themes of current research on bio-membranes as well as the new therapeutic strategies that result from them.

The conferences will take place in Nice.

This Winter School offers students the opportunity to discover the field of biological membranes by :
  • Following intensive courses in cell biology, biochemistry and membrane biophysics
  • Participating in discussions on research and development issues in this area
