Actin Assembly for Intracellular Functions

Actin Assembly for Intracellular Functions

February, 20th - February, 21st 2020
Freiburg | Germany

Dear friends and colleagues,

on behalf of the organizing committee, I'm excited to announce our first symposium on "Actin Assembly for Intracellular Functions".

Actin is one of the central building blocks for cellular life. Dynamic actin filaments define not only a cell's shape and contractility, but also several organelle-related and subcellular processes in space and time. Together with an unparalleled range of protein interactions as well as actin regulatory factors, the actin cytoskeleton fulfils a multitude of essential physiological functions.

The meeting will cover a range of topics from intracellular trafficking and motility, mitochondrial dynamics and fission to nuclear actin cytoskeletal functions and gene regulation.

The meeting will take place at the Otto-Krayer-Haus on the city campus of Freiburg's University and aims at providing a highly interactive environment between young scientists and renowned international experts in the field of cellular actin dynamics.

To further support young scientists and foster scientific discussion, we will select several short talks from abstract submissions in addition to poster sessions. Space is limited to 200 participants - so register soon!

We look forward to a lively and interactive symposium at Feb 20, 2020 in Freiburg, city of the Black Forest.

Best regards,
Robert Grosse
