EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Cellular mechanisms Driven by Liquid Phase Separation

 Dates: 14 - 17 May 2018   Registration: 28. Mar 18  Abstract: 14. Feb 18  Event webpage: www.embo-embl-symposia.org/symposia/2018/EES18-03/index.html  Aim:Liquid phase separation is emerging as a common biophysical basis underlying many important cellular functions. This conference will bring together scientist from soft matter polymer physics, molecular “un” structural biologists, cell biologists and developmental biologists

  • - to increase the awareness in cell/developmental biology for how important phase separation is for our understanding of many biological processes;
  • - to explore the large repertoire of new tools generated by other disciplines that are ripe to be applied to complex cell/developmental biology problems related to phase separation;
  • - to close the gap in human potential and transdisciplinary training to tackle the role of phase separation in biology.

The symposium will help to push this emerging topic onto the world-wide stage, but in particular Europe, and vice versa facilitate European researchers access to this emerging topic.  Contact: events@embl.de  Location: EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany  Website: www.embl.de
