Focusing on the frontier of in vivo chemical biology, this Symposium will explore how chemists and biologists are contributing concepts and tools to our understanding of the molecular basis of cell biology. In a series of five scientific sessions across two days, an international panel of speakers will examine cell biology "from the inside-out".
Session 1: The nucleus and cell division
Session 2: Metal ions and metabolites
Session 3: Cytoplasmic processes
Session 4: Membranes
Session 5: Future directions: cell and chemical biology moving forward
The closing keynote session will serve as a summary of the meeting, but also examines the future of chemical biology for understanding cellular processes. Carolyn Bertozzi and James Rothman will discuss new developments and challenges for chemical biology as it explores the inner workings of the cell.
