The second advanced course on bioelectrochemistry at the International School of Biophysics took place at the Majorana Center in Erice, Italy, during 5-15 November 1984. Three years ago, the first such meeting, also organized by G. MILAZZO Rome and M. Blank New York, had been devoted to redox processes, a subject with strong and obvious links to electrochemistry. The subject of this meeting, membrane phenomena, was much broader, but the emphasis was on the electrochemical aspects of ion transport, energy transduction, and signal conduction. In addition, there were discussions on three pratical applications of bioelectrochemistry, the effects of applied electric fields on membranes, mediated and non-mediated transport of pharmacologic agents and the exploitation of information about biological membranes in the development industrial processes.
