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 turned to organelles. Although organelles are a prominent area of research, studies into their dynamics tend to overlook the connection with the cytoskeleton. This meeting brought together scientists studying the interface between organelles and the cytoskeleton at different scales and perspectives using a range of model systems. We had a stellar line-up of speakers who covered topics such as actin, mitochondria, the ER, the Golgi, motors, microtubules, the nucleus, endosomes and autophagy.

About our Journal Meetings

The teams behind our journals bring you the most relevant and challenging topics for discussion through a series of international meetings.

Important meetings serving the communities around our journals.

Each meeting is individually crafted to suit the topic and audience, ranging from small intimate meetings with a focus on intense and detailed discussion to larger meetings with a focus on networking and opportunities for attendees to more widely share their latest research.

Themes explored in the Journal Meetings go on to be discussed in the Company’s journals, helping to shape the field and even the journals themselves.

About our Workshops

The Company of Biologists is widely known for its excellence in scientific publishing and it now runs a successful high level series of Workshops. The Workshops provide leading experts and early career scientists from a diverse range of scientific backgrounds with a stimulating environment for the cross fertilization of interdisciplinary ideas. The programmes are carefully developed and are intended to champion the novel techniques and innovations that will underpin important scientific advances.

Propose a new Workshop

If you have a vision for such a meeting but don’t have the time to arrange the logistics or raise the funding, then please contact us. We are seeking proposals for future Workshops and provide all necessary support.
