BIOPHYSICS CONGRESS 2015

The R&D programs of BIOFISIKA are grouped in two main Research Lines and five Research Sublines. This rational combination of independent group abilities and skills in supplementary fields contributes to reduce scientific dispersion and undertake more ambitious and complex research projects. The distribution of the research groups in the different Research Lines respond to the will of BIOFISIKA to create a unique Research and Training program able to exploit all the singularities present in the Center, fostering the complementarities and synergies of the different groups.

Prebiotic Membranes

Kepa Ruiz-Mirazo

Studying the origins and early development of biomembranes is fundamental in order to understand their present complexity and, at a larger scale, the complexity of minimal living organisms (prokaryote cells). In this line of work we explore in vitro the main structural and dynamic ...

Sphingolipids and Membrane Domains

Félix M. Goñi, Alicia Alonso

Sphingolipids are a group of lipids whose structure is based on sphingosine and are important in the regulation of important cell processes, e.g. apoptosis. Our studies have shown that the so-called simple sphingolipids (sphingosine, ceramide, and their 1-phosphorylated derivatives) exhibit ...
