About the Workshop
The integration of different disciplines (e.g. cell biology, chemistry, physics) combined with advances in cellular engineering and in vivo quantitative imaging, as well as the development of quantitative biophysical tools, have led to profound mechanistic insights into endocytosis and how it is implicated in multiple cellular functions.
This EMBO Workshop strives to connect disciplines from different fast-moving fields linked to endocytosis, which require a common forum to discuss the latest developments and future directions in an integrated fashion.
The final goal is to uncover novel molecular and cellular networks involving endocytosis by providing concrete examples of how collaborations between researchers from different disciplines are currently leading to fundamental discoveries.
This multidisciplinary approach was a feature of the previous edition of this meeting, where a number of ‘‘joint talks‘‘ were delivered by cell biologists and physicists that have built a long-standing collaboration. This successful formula has now been expanded to include a series of joints talks, covering not only the roles of endocytosis in physiology, but also its involvement in disease and cancer.

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.
