Day 3 UpdateHeather McMahon | February 22, 2010
This morning I attended the Membrane Active Peptides platform and I was a little disappointed. I thought all of the talks covered interesting experiments, but some of the work could have been presented in a more coherent manner. The new member coffee had excellent treats and it was nice to meet some of the more established members of the society.
The discussion of lipid rafts and the interaction between ceramide and cholesterol with sphingomyelin in the Membrane Physical Chemistry platform was informative and educational. It gave my some good ideas for experiments in my research project.
We ate lunch at Out The Door (in the Westfield Center), which was excellent as usual. If you like your experience there you should check out the real restaurant in the Ferry Building called Slanted Door, I highly recommend it. (Overall rating 4.5/5).
