SEMM Workshop on Cell Migration:
From Molecules to Organisms and Diseases
Date: May 12th-14th, 2007
Location: IFOM-IEO Campus
The topics of the workshop are:
- SIGNALLING AND SPATIAL INFORMATION
- MODEL ORGANISMS
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.
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: http://www.omnt.fr http://www.omnt.fr/
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!
