Conference on cell polarity and membrane traffic, Pultusk, Poland
A conference on cell polarity and membrane traffic will take place from 31 March to 5 April 2012 in Pultusk, Poland.
Cell polarity and vesicle sorting are fundamental biological processes that impact stem cell function, cancer, bacterial and viral infections, developmental defects and neurological diseases.
Early screens in model organisms identified many conserved genes necessary for cell polarisation, but initially these were not recognized as playing any role in vesicular transport. However, interdisciplinary studies from a number of laboratories have revealed exciting and unexpected links between cell polarity establishment and membrane traffic.
The event will seek to bring together stakeholders in order to encourage interactions, build new collaborations, and advance the field.
