Cell dynamics: organelle-cytoskeleton interface
Organisers: Edgar Gomes, Heidi McBride, Sharon Tooze and Michael Way
Date: 19 - 22 May 2019
Location: Pestana Palace Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal
Following on from our highly successful inaugural Cellular Dynamics Meeting in 2017, which focused on the membrane-cytoskeleton interface, the second in this series of meetings now turns to organelles. Although organelles are a prominent area of research, studies into their dynamics tend to overlook the connection with the cytoskeleton. This meeting aims to bring together scientists studying the interface between organelles and the cytoskeleton at different scales and perspectives using a range of model systems. We have a stellar line-up of speakers who will cover topics such as actin, mitochondria, the ER, the Golgi, motors, microtubules, the nucleus, endosomes and autophagy.
