SEMM Workshop on Cell Migration: From Molecules to Organisms and Diseases

SEMM Workshop on Cell Migration:
From Molecules to Organisms and Diseases

Date: May 12th-14th, 2007

Location: IFOM-IEO Campus
                   Milano, Italy

The topics of the workshop are:

Understanding how cells migrate contributes to elucidate various fundamental processes involved in normal and pathological conditions. A significant progress in unraveling the mechanisms underlying cell migration can only be achieved through a comprehensive approach spanning from the study of single molecules to model organisms and diseases. This workshop will provide the scientific community with a focused panel of discussion covering all the topical aspects of cell migration, with the ultimate aim to highlight future challenges, pressing questions and provide novel experimental models to address them.

This workshop is open to all scientists including PhD students and Postdocs.

The Observatory for Micro & NanoTechnologies seminar: “NanoTechnologies for cell inve

DATE: 14th March 2006 in Paris

LOCATION: Institut Curie, 12 rue Lhomond, Paris 5ème.

Agenda is now available,please see the following link for all programme details: "Nanotechnologies for Cell Investigation "Seminar Programme details

and online registration is open at:

International experts will present the state of the art in the new field of "micro-nanotechnologies for cell biology". They will present methods for the manipulation of single cells, use of surface patterning to study the interactions of cells with solid substrates, measurement of biologically pertinent parameters by optical,  electrical or mechanical techniques at the scale of single cells and mimicking of cellular functions in artificial structures. Don’t miss this opportunity to get a complete and up-to-date picture of this exciting domain!

First Annual Luminy advanced course on immunology and EMBO Workshop on "Future Direct
Between January 13th-15th 2005, the CIML, one of Europe’s leading research centres in fundamental immunology and immunopathology, is organising a series of four in-depth lectures aimed at doctoral and postdoctoral students in order to mark the opening of its new institute. These lectures will cover diverse aspects of recognition strategies in innate and adaptive immunity. In addition to the lecture course, a number of discussion groups led by CIML staff members will also be organised. Students attending the CIML grand opening event will be given access to the concomitant EMBO workshop: "The Road Ahead: Future Directions in Fundamental and Clinical Immunology"

Details for both events can be found HERE
