LS1.3: Cytoskeleton and signalling
Session co-organisers: Klemens Rottner, Claire Wells
The Cytoskeleton and Signalling session aims to highlight both technical developments at high resolution and novel applications that are being utilised to study cytoskeletal dynamics and/or cytoskeletal-associated signalling events. Contributions to this session are solicited from any area of research, human or animal, that is focussed on interrogating the cytoskeleton.
