The cytoskeletal field is fast moving and changing very quickly. As well as new discoveries in how proteins are assembled, regulated and interact to contribute to cell behaviour and function, there are new developments in imaging technology, and in chemical biology that are pushing forward the frontiers of research into the cytoskeleton and cell behaviour. Indeed, cytoskeletal research often works as a paradigm for the development of new imaging techniques and experimental approaches, because of its well characterized cellular structure.

This conference will address the best and the newest developments in this research area. It brings together researchers from a broad range of scientific backgrounds, but with a common aim of understanding the basic properties of the cytoskeleton, and how it is organised and utilised by cells and tissues.
