About the Conference

The field of endocytosis gathers researchers investigating endocytic membrane trafficking at multiple levels, from single molecules to organisms. Endocytosis research now extends beyond cell biology and becomes integrated into physiology, developmental biology or molecular medicine but also into physics of biological processes and systems biology. Therefore, the main objective of this EMBO Conference is to present the current diversity of endocytosis research, embracing new conceptual and technological developments. The particular emphasis will be placed on studies integrating endocytic mechanism into the physiology of cells, tissues or organisms, and into disease processes. At the same time, physical and structural approaches to study molecular basis of endocytic trafficking will be represented.
