The Crossing Biological Membranes Network (CBMNet) is hosting its final meeting in Sheffield on 30 April – 2 May 2019.

The ‘Crossing Biological Membranes’ Network (CBMNet) is a BBSRC Network in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy (BBSRC NIBB), designed to foster collaborations between academia, industry, policy makers and NGOs in order to find new approaches to tackle research challenges, translate research and deliver key benefits in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy (IBBE).

CBMNet has worked towards advancing understanding of the the mechanisms by which substances are transported into, within and out of cell factories, which will lead to the development of enabling technologies that are crucial for the future development of almost all cell-based IBBE applications.

They will be holding their final meeting at the University of Sheffield on Tuesday 30th April – Thursday 2nd May 2019.  Abstract submission is currently open for short (approximately 10-12 minute) presentations.

The draft agenda includes sessions on:
