A four day workshop from The Company of Biologists on the cytoskeleton and its diverse importance from molecular structures to large scale neuronal processes
The aim of the workshop is to delineate how basic molecular and structural knowledge from the cytoskeleton field can help the understanding of neuronal processes that take place on a larger scale.
The event goal is to discuss novel ideas and form new, fruitful collaborations in a small and focussed setting. The workshop aims to catalyse a strong interdisciplinary approach to explaining some of the key molecular processes involved in the formation of a brain, its function and how it goes wrong in diseases from dementia to psychiatric disorders.
Topics discussed may include neuronal development and connectivity, neuronal transmission, and neurodegeneration.
Who is this event for?
This workshop hopes to bring together scientists from a wide spectrum of disciplines that do not commonly have the chance to interact: neurobiologists with backgrounds in cellular, developmental systems and behavioural neurobiology, as well as structural biologists and biochemists from the cytoskeleton field.
There are 10 funded place for early career researchers to attend our workshops along with the 20 speakers. The application deadline is 18th October 2019.
