Location, location, location: The who, how and where of muscle mechanics
We would like to invite you to the special Biophysical Society Networking Event: “Location, location, location: The who, how and where of muscle mechanics”
When: Monday, November 29 from 5 pm until 7 pm (MET)
Where: Online via Zoom. Please register for the event on our website.
Organisation: Max-Delbrück-Centrum für Molekulare Medizin and Universitätsmedizin Göttingen
Localization proteomics has provided an unprecedented view on macromolecular machines and helps improve our understanding of basic cell biology and processes as diverse as sarcomere mechanics, compartmentalization within the sarcomplasma, and spliceosome function.
With this short symposium, we will focus on connecting labs and institutions between continents in applying localization proteomics to heart and skeletal muscle mechanics, energetics, and electrophysiology, as the field moves from cells to organoid, engineered tissue and animal models.
Senior speakers include Manuel Mayr (King's College, London), Philipp Mertins (Max Delbrück Center, Berlin), and Jared Kushner (Columbia University, New York).
Junior speakers are selected based on the submitted abstracts.
