Symposium Forces in Cell Biology

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the “Forces in Cell Biology” symposium. This event aims to bring together leading cell biologists and biophysicists involved in the research of force generation in biological systems. We hope to provide a general overview of the current advances in the field and give the opportunity for participants to engage in novel interactions and collaborations.
