The symposium on " Current challenges in cell-cell communication " will take place in Paris on July 1st, 2016.
The aim of this symposium is to understand how cells dynamically integrate external signals from the microenvironment is a challenging question in cell biology. This meeting will focus on the communications that exist between different cells and how heterotypic interactions and/or paracrine signalling between cells are functionally important for cell communications, cell dissemination, inter-organ communications, tissue morphogenesis or regeneration.
The goal is to cover this broad area of investigation by presenting a large spectrum of molecular, genetic and cell biological approaches applied in a range of organisms, thanks to inclusion of multidisciplinary talks discussing overlapping subjects. This should facilitate a broad understanding of the field, even for participants at early stages of their careers or new to this area of investigation. The meeting venue can host around 100 participants, providing opportunities for extensive interactions among participants in a friendly and comfortable environment.
The program is a strong mix of excellent speakers covering a broad range of topics. Additional speakers will be selected on the basis of their abstract. Deadline for abstract/poster submissions: 20th June 2016.
