Deborah Leckband of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign will be our keynote speaker this year. Along with other speakers, Dr. Leckband will contribute her expertise on the function and structure of cadherens. We will also discuss the biophysics of selectins, integrins and other receptors at the levels of single molecules, isolated cells, and intact tissues. An entire session will be dedicated to clinical applications of receptor biology.
Please consider submitting an abstract for a platform or poster presentation.
