Symposia and Guest Lectures

The regularly scheduled Symposia and Guest Lectures focus on emerging topics in the field of membrane biology and the structure, function, and dynamics of membrane-associated macromolecular complexes. Conferences hosted by CRC 1507 connect world-leading scientists from diverse backgrounds (biochemistry, biophysics, chemistry, cell and structural biology, medicine) with the local research community.


Annual retreats outside Frankfurt are traditionally seen as a great opportunity to present and discuss project data and student progress in a focused, yet pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. By providing insights into current research, these events also provide a platform to strengthen the corporate identity of all CRC members and to enhance collaborations.

Every two years, the IRTG also organizes PhD retreats, where students at different stages of their doctorate present their research projects.


Dr. Bonnie J. Murphy (CRC project 15) has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant for her innovative research to determine structures of proteins involved in the cellular energy metabolism. Congratulations!

Glad to say that our 1s Retreat was a true success thanks to everybody involved. We had a great time with lots of science and exchange and once again realized that we're such a great team 🫶 Special kudos to our guests @TheHurleyLab @lauraoh1231 @bengeliscious @stephan_till &Emma


The @sfb1507 cool kids hanging out!
Great last night at our retreat!!! Go membrane proteins!!!! #LipidLove
