LS1.1: Organelle Dynamics
Session co-organisers: Jon Lane, Viki Allan, Judith Klumperman
Membrane organelles are not static structures. They are constantly remodelled, they exchange content through carrier intermediates, and they can alter location and orientation to meet the changing demands of the cell. Understanding how organelle dynamics are coordinated in cells remains a key objective. This session will showcase recent advances in our understanding of organelle dynamics, including the roles of cytoskeletal motors in organelle positioning and transport.
