Structure and Dynamics of Biological Membranes

The course provides advanced knowledge of the lipid membrane and its interplay with membrane protein structure and function.

Information for admitted students Spring 2021

Congratulations! You have been admitted at Stockholm University and we hope that you will enjoy your studies with us.

In order to ensure that your studies begin as smoothly as possible we have compiled a short checklist for the beginning of the semester.

Follow the instructions on wether you have to reply to your offer or not.

Checklist for admitted students

  1. Activate your university account

    The first step in being able to register and gain access to all the university's IT services.

  2. Register at your department

    Registration can be done in different ways. Read the instructions from your department below.

  3. Read all the information on this page

    Here you will find what you need to know before your course or programme starts.

IMPORTANT

Your seat may be withdrawn if you do not register according to the instructions provided by your department.

Welcome activities

Stockholm University organises a series of welcome activities that stretch over a few weeks at the beginning of each semester. The programme is voluntary (attendance is optional) and includes Arrival Service at the airport and an Orientation Day, see more details about these events below.
Your department may also organise activities for welcoming international students. More information will be provided by your specific department.

Pre-departure information

New in Sweden

A broad overview of the different types of membrane protein families with an emphasis on transporters, channels, GPCRs and respiratory proteins is covered.

We will discuss how energy is transformed to do work at the molecular level and the role of the lipid bilayer to facilitate this.

Additionally, the course highlights practical methods for working with membrane proteins as well as the most recent advances in membrane protein research, where the determination of structures has led to the understanding of basic mechanisms such as e.g., ion-conductance at the molecular level.

The course is closely associated to the research activities at the Department, where several groups are in the front line at the international level.

 

  • Course structure

    After completing the course the student should:

    • be able to explain the biochemical and physical properties of biological membranes
    • be able to explain principles for biogenesis and design of membrane proteins
    • be able to explain a number of techniques that can be used for studies of membrane proteins
    • be able to explain principles for membrane transport

     

    Teaching format

    The teaching consists of lectures, seminars, project work, and demonstrations of laboratory techniques.

    Assessment

    Written exam.
