Soft Matter is delighted to offer a poster prize at the meeting “Pierre-Gille de Gennes days on Physics of cells: From soft to living matter” taking place 2nd – 9th September 2012, in Hyeres on the Mediterranean coast of France.
The aim of the meeting is to bring together eminent researchers from interdisciplinary fields working on various aspects of cell and tissue biophysics including adhesion, mechanics, mechano-sensing, morphogenesis, transport, single molecule studies among others.
An advanced school, aimed at graduate students as well as researchers at the interface of biology with physical sciences, will precede the conference. Scientific sessions will include membranes, single molecules, adhesion and mechanics, cytoskeleton, gene expression, tissues and morphogenesis, bacterial motility, intracellular traffic, and emerging tools and techniques.
