Emerging concepts of the neuronal cytoskeleton

22 – 26 March 2015 | Puerto Varas, Chile

 

About the workshop

The shape and function of nerve cells is critically dependent on the cytoskeleton, which is a dynamic system of intracellular protein polymers of astonishing complexity and versatility. The cytoskeleton controls all aspects of neuronal shape and motility, including cell migration and axon pathfinding, which define the architecture and wiring pattern of the nervous system, and synaptic morphology and stability, which form the structural basis of learning, memory and cognition. The cytoskeleton also orchestrates the intracellular traffic of macromolecules and membranous organelles that is fundamental to all aspects of nerve cell function.  This EMBO Workshop will explore emerging concepts in a number of exciting areas of cytoskeletal research in neurons, including the mechanisms of axonal transport, cytoskeletal dynamics in dendritic spines, the role of the cytoskeleton in the establishment and maintenance of neuronal polarity and in axon growth and guidance, and alterations of the cytoskeleton in neurodegenerative diseases.

Selection criteria

Applicants must submit an abstract of the research that they intend to present at the workshop poster session. Applicants will be selected according to the relevance of their abstract to the workshop theme as well as the scientific quality of the research described. In addition, a small subcommittee drawn from the list of invited speakers will select 6 student/postdoc applicants to present short talks.

 

Payment

Payment detail will be sent to successful applicants.

 

Abstract guidelines

Abstracts should contain a title, the names and affiliations of all authors, an abstract (maximum 250 words), 3 to 4 keywords, and an acknowledgment of any funding sources.
