About the Workshop
Living systems are intrinsically dynamic as they develop, renew their components, adapt to their physiological environment. This is illustrated for instance in the development of embryos and organs. Understanding biological complexity is one of the most significant challenges for the future. It will impact both basic research and medicine, since diseases emerge from anomalies in the organization and dynamics of living systems. This EMBO workshop aims at bringing together biologists and physicists working on different aspects of biochemical and mechanical signaling. We wish to foster interdisciplinary interactions between scientists focusing on the organization and dynamics of living systems from the molecular to the cellular and tissue scales.
The EMBO workshop will cover various topics: mechanics, cell motility, polarity and cell organization, morphogenesis and growth.
