EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Cellular mechanisms Driven by Liquid Phase Separation


Liquid phase separation is emerging as a common biophysical basis underlying many important cellular functions. This conference will bring together scientist from soft matter polymer physics, molecular “un” structural biologists, cell biologists and developmental biologists
- to increase the awareness in cell/developmental biology for how important phase separation is for our understanding of many biological processes;
- to explore the large repertoire of new tools generated by other disciplines that are ripe to be applied to complex cell/developmental biology problems related to phase separation;
- to close the gap in human potential and transdisciplinary training to tackle the role of phase separation in biology.

The symposium will help to push this emerging topic onto the world-wide stage, but in particular Europe, and vice versa facilitate European researchers access to this emerging topic.
