Exocytosis & Endocytosis

Amy Lee, Chair (2019)

The mission of this subgroup is to further the understanding of the basic mechanisms of exocytosis and endocytosis. Research in this area has advanced rapidly in the last few years, owing to the convergence of a number of formerly distinct disciplines and the invention of new methods for high-resolution, real-time monitoring of exocytosis and endocytosis. Details of the machinery for sensing intracellular calcium elevation and for fusion of the vesicle and plasma membranes are gradually emerging. Our subgroup seeks to accelerate progress by facilitating the exchange of ideas and collaborations. We organize a yearly symposium in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society, and the symposium is followed by a dinner and a mixer. The subgroup has consolidated and sponsors the Bernard Katz Award, which recognizes outstanding scientific careers in the field of exocytosis and endocytosis.
