About the Workshop
Cell-to-cell communication via the movement of proteins, nucleic acids and small molecules underpins many aspects of plant development and environmental responses. In plants there is increasing evidence that plasmodesmata tightly regulate symplastic intercellular communication and are becoming a common focus for plant biologists from different fields. New findings identify both mechanisms of plasmodesmal regulation and the mobile signals that signal between cells.
This EMBO Workshop aims to bring together researchers who study symplastic cell-to-cell communication in various contexts to identify common mechanisms of intercellular communication, with the ultimate goal of advancing research to better examine multicellular responses and intercellular co-ordination.
About EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).
Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
