European Cytoskeletal Forum: BSCB-Biochemical Society 2024 Cell Migration meeting

Scientific meeting

15 Apr 2024 - 18 Apr 2024


Location: Edgbaston Park Hotel, Birmingham, UK

Our exciting programme brings together the Biochemical Society, the British Society for Cell Biology and the European Cytoskeletal Forum to provide a platform for the cell migration community. Cell migration touches upon a range of biological processes, including development, cancer and wound healing. There have been many recent advances in the field, including novel biochemical insights, imaging modalities, computational modelling and in vivo systems. This timely meeting will be an opportunity to bring together established experts and young researchers who have a common interest in understanding fundamental cell behaviour in contexts relevant to health and disease. Our list of speakers features emerging leaders in the field and includes diversity of disciplines, career stage and geographical locations.  

We will focus on five main themes where substantial progress has been made in recent times:

  • Molecular regulation of cytoskeletal dynamics using in vitro reconstitution to dissect how actin powers migration
  • Control of different modes of migration by environmental cues, such as chemical and physical cues
  • The physical context of cell migration and how internal and external forces drive cell behaviour
  • Computational and mathematical approaches to understanding cell migration
  • Cell migration in multicellular organisms, in disease and development

Our programme includes invited plenary speakers from all career stages, short talks chosen from the abstracts submitted, posters, and flash talks. We will also include industry exhibits, a careers session and 'meet the speakers' sessions. This format will provide opportunities for everyone to participate actively in the meeting and maximise opportunities for information exchange and collaboration. Poster sessions are given priority time slots to ensure maximum participation and poster prizes will enhance engagement and promote early career researchers.
