This Biochemical Society Annual Symposium on Recent Advances in Membrane Biochemistry was organized to bring together experts from across the spectrum of biomembrane disciplines from the biological to the biophysical/structural, with the intention of promoting interactions and collaborations across the field. We were keen that the potential for improving human health that stems from a deeper understanding of membrane structure/function should be acknowledged, especially in the light of the increasing numbers of membrane protein structures that continue to be made available to the biomembrane community. This foreword provides an idea of what was communicated in the various sessions and, we hope, gives an impression of the excitement generated by the speakers and delegates at this over-subscribed Symposium.
