EMBL Conference: Centrosomes and Spindle Bodies
Event Sep 24 - Sep 27, 2017
Location: Heidelberg, Germany
Centrosome and spindle pole bodies (SPB) are major microtubule organising centres of animal and yeast cells, respectively. They play critical roles in cell division, cell polarity, signaling, immunity, cell motility and animal development. Centrosome abnormalities have been implicated in a large number of human diseases including cilia-related syndromes, microcephaly, dwarfism and cancer. This conference will provide the primary platform for exchange of expertise and new developments in this expanding field of research.
The aim is to promote the field by offering a multidisciplinary and diverse program to foster collaborations, advance new concepts and exchange technologies.
