Mechanical Forces in Biology 2017


The Mechanical Forces in Biology symposium, which takes place at EMBL Heidelberg from 12-15 July, aims to unite the field of mechanobiology, by bringing together world-leading experts in the generation and sensing of forces from the molecular scale to the organismal scale, with an important emphasis on the combination of physics and computer modelling with molecular genetics and live-imaging in vitro or in vivo.

The field is currently expanding rapidly and the event aims to provide a comprehensive overview of this progress as well as aiming to capitalise on the opportunities for new collaborations. Topics covered in the symposium include: force generation; mechanosensing; mechanotransduction; cellular morphogenesis and tissue morphogenesis.
