EMBO | EMBL Symposium

The microtubule cytoskeleton is essential for a wide variety of cellular functions, such as chromosome segregation, directed vesicle and organelle transport, cell motility and cell polarity. Impaired microtubule function can lead to human diseases including cancer and neurodegenerative disorders, where microtubules serve as important therapeutic targets. In recent years, interdisciplinary approaches embracing cell biology, genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology and mathematical modelling have made a tremendous impact on microtubule research.
The progressive diversification of the microtubule field has created the need for a strong meeting that unifies the community and brings together researchers from different disciplines interested in microtubule research. This role has been played by this conference series, which was initiated in 2010. Our meetings bring together early-career and established researchers from all over the world who are interested in fundamental microtubule biology and its impact on organism development, homeostasis and disease. As in our previous meetings, this new symposium will feature inspirational keynote and landmark lectures, a large number of short talk opportunities selected from the submitted abstracts, and lively poster sessions, as well as special activities for networking and advancing EMBO global initiatives.

EMBO | EMBL Symposia promote scientific communication and collaboration in the European research area. They provide scientists with a platform to discuss and exchange ideas on forward-looking topics and new developments in the life sciences.
Topics emphasise upcoming developments and the interdisciplinary nature of related fields. Jointly funded and organised by EMBO and EMBL – and complementary to their respective courses, workshops, and conference programmes – the symposia promote scientific communication and collaboration.
All symposia are held in the EMBL Advanced Training Centre (ATC) in Heidelberg, Germany, or virtually.
Date: 8 - 11 Jun 2022
Location: EMBL Heidelberg
