The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from the greater Chicago area who are using physical approaches (experimental and/or computational) to investigate the structure and function of the cytoskeleton and the mechanisms of cell motility.

The morning session will provide opportunities for a range of students and post-docs to speak and get input from their peers; talks will be chosen from submitted abstracts (click here to submit an abstract by February 25, 2013).

The afternoon will start with a plenary lecture by guest speaker Paul Janmey (University of Pennsylvania), continue with a series of talks by established Chicago area researchers, and end with a discussion session with refreshments. Confirmed speakers are listed below. We hope you will join us!

Participation is free, but limited to 70 people, so registration is required. Please use the link at the top of the page to register.
