Register for the Triangle Cytoskeleton Meeting, held Sept. 21, by August 24.
One of the outstanding strengths within the Research Triangle is research on the cytoskeleton – the defining structure of every living cell. The Triangle Cytoskeleton Meeting aims to strengthen communication and collaboration between the Triangle’s institutions.
The one-day event will be held Monday, September 21 and will host talks and poster presentations divided among three sessions:
- Mechanics and Structure of Cytoskeletal Complexes
- Quantitative and Modelling Approaches in Studying the Cytoskeleton
- and the Cytoskeleton in Development and Disease
These sessions, as well as lunch and a happy hour will provide opportunities to interact with fellow researchers throughout the day.
For more information please visit the Triangle Cytoskeleton Meeting website or view the invitation here.
Registrations close on Aug 24th.
