EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Mechanical Forces in Biology: From Force Production to Integrated Roles

Wednesday 12 July 2017 - Saturday 15 July 2017 The symposium aims to unite the field of mechanobiology, by bringing together world-leading experts in the generation and sensing of forces from the molecular scale to the organismal scale. An important emphasis will be the combination of physics and computer modelling with molecular genetics and live-imaging in vitro or in vivo.  The field is currently expanding rapidly and we aim to provide a comprehensive overview of this progress as well as aiming to capitalise on the opportunities for new collaborations. Topics include:

  • Force Generation
  • Cellular Morphogenesis
  • Tissue Morphogenesis 

 Organisers:Barry Thompson (UK), Margaret Gardel (US), Armagan Kocer (NL), Dennis Discher (USA), Francois Nedelec (EMBL). For more information please visit: http://www.embo-embl-symposia.org/symposia/2017/EES17-06/index.html
