Abstract: 
Biomembranes undergo continuous remodelling by budding and fission processes, which create new membrane compartments in the form of vesicles, as well as by adhesion and fusion, which combine two such compartments into a single one. The vesicles are transported by teams of molecular motors from donor membranes, where they are created, to acceptor membranes,into which they are incorporated by membrane fusion. In this talk, I will address the energetics and kinetics of these remodelling processes as well as their relevance for intracellular transport.
