Imaging Cell Dynamics
Organisers: Erika Holzbaur, Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz, Rob Parton and Michael Way
Date: 14 - 17 May 2023
Location: Pestana Palace Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal
This meeting will be the fourth instalment of our highly successful Cell Dynamics Meeting series, and will focus on ‘Imaging Cell Dynamics’. Emphasis will be placed on researchers addressing biological questions using the latest technologies rather than engineers and optical experts developing new microscopes to ensure the meeting still has a cellular focus.
This meeting represents a unique opportunity to bring together many different experts working at the interface between cell biology and imaging who use advanced light and electron microscopy approaches, as well as leading developers of imaging analysis approaches. With talks from an outstanding list of speakers and selected delegates, we hope to delve further into this important area of research and inspire PIs, postdocs and students.
- Super resolution imaging
- Correlative light and electron microscopy
- Cryo-electron tomography
- Organelle dynamics
- Membrane trafficking
- Neurons and neurodegeneration
- Tissue dynamics
- Immune response
