Structure of membrane
What is the role of actin cytoskeleton, different bilayer lipids and proteins in regulating membrane sub-compartmentalization?
How do bilayer and signaling lipids contribute to signal transduction processes across cell membranes?
How do lipids regulate specific membrane proteins?
Cell Polarity, homeostasis
Apical and basolateral plasma membrane domains have different lipid and protein compositions. How do these biomolecules contribute to cell polarization and maintenance?
Lipids are emerging as major players in cell metabolism and nutritition. How do they perform these functions?
Which methods can we use to study protein-lipid interactions and metabolic pathways?
How can we synthesize lipid probes that can be followed in cells and tissues and mimic the properties of their native counterparts?
The Max Planck-NCBS Center on Lipid Research will support ongoing efforts to come up with functional and effective databases for lipids by organizing international workshops where open issues and future developments are discussed.
The Max Planck-NCBS Center on Lipid Research will organize screening of blood samples from Indian children and adults to identify multiparametric lipidomic signatures to find out how they differ from other ethnic groups
