Mechanobiology: Measuring and Modelling Cell Migration

RWTH Aachen University

September 27/28, 2018


Dear colleagues and friends,

As the coordinator of the H2020 Marie Curie action InCeM, I cordially invite you to attend the international symposium entitled "Mechanobiology: Measuring and Modelling Cell Migration" which will take place from September 27 to 28, 2018, at RWTH Aachen University.

The symposium intends to bring together researchers from the fields of medicine, biology, biophysics, computer science, and mathematics who share an interest in cell migration and mechanobiology. It is based on the EU-funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network InCeM. The meeting will provide the opportunity for early stage researchers and advanced scientists from academia and industry, as well as internationally acclaimed leaders to engage in interdisciplinary discussions and personal exchange. While all participants are encouraged to present their data, we are pleased to welcome the following renowned experts as keynote speakers and plenary lecturers:

  • William BEMENT, University of Wisconsin-Madison/USA
    The Cell Cortex as an Excitable Medium
  • Núria GAVARA, Queen Mary University of London/UK
    The cytoskeleton, by the numbers
  • Jacky GOETZ, Sébastien HARLEPP, Université Strasbourg/F
    Biomechanical regulation of tumor metastasis
  • Julie PLASTINO, Institut Curie-Section de Recherche, Paris/F
    Forces drive basement membrane invasion in Caenorhabditis elegans
  • Stefan JOCKENHOEVEL, RWTH Aachen University
    Biohybrid Implant Development – The role of mechanobiological stimuli
  • Michael KOZLOV, Tel Aviv University/ISR
    Modeling Membrane Super-Structures Formed By Caveolae
  • Leif DEHMELT, Max-Planck-Institute of Molecular Physiology, TU Dortmund
    Self-organization of cell contraction dynamics

The full program and updates will be posted on our website. Please register for the symposium as soon as possible but no later than September 14, 2018. We ask you to share this e-mail with other colleagues and students and to help us advertise the meeting (see attached announcement).

Further information is available from our website . Please register for the symposium as soon as possible but no later than September 14, 2018. Poster contributions and applications for Flash Talks are still welcome - just indicate upon registration and send an abstract.

I am looking forward to an exciting meeting!
