Interdisciplinary workshop on cell motility: Adhesion, in vivo migration and polarity

March 23rd-25th 2015 / Institut Curie - 26 rue d'Ulm - Paris - BDD Amphitheater Timo Betz

The goal of this workshop is to bring together biologists and experimental and theoretical physicists to discuss current topics in cell motility from different perspectives. A strong focus is made on the interaction during the talks and in between sessions. We aim at a mixed audience with a diverse scientific background and different levels of professional experience from students to leading scientists in the field.

Cell Motility Course 2015

12/01/2015 - 02/02/2015 / Amphithéâtre Curie, Institut Curie, 11-13 rue Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris Timo Betz

Cell motility is a key process required for development, immune response and cancer invasion. The course is organized to first give a detailed summary of the different motility modes and the processes involved. The goal is to combine the biological background with physical approaches to understand the details of cell motility and its implication in the different biological functions.

1st Course on Multi-scale integration in biological systems – 2014

November 13-18, 2014 / Institut Curie - Paris M. Coppey, M. Dahan, H. Isambert, P. Martin, P. Silberzan, A. Walczak

One of the fundamental issues in biology is the understanding of the relationship between the multiple spatial and temporal scales observed in a biological system. From molecules to a cellular function, from a collection of cells to an organism, or from individuals to a population, the complex interactions between singular elements can give rise to “emergent” properties at the ensemble level. To what extent can the spatial and temporal order seen at the system level be explained by subscale properties?
