Mechanobiology of Proteins & Cells (Biophysical Society Thematic Meeting)

Date: September 30 – October 3, 2013
Location: Salisbury Cove, Maine

Abstract Submission Deadline: June 10, 2013
Registration Deadline: July 8, 2013

Description:
 The Biophysical Society and the Mount Desert Island Biological Lab (MDIBL) are
  co-organizing a meeting that will provide a forum for analysis of the
 mechanobiology of proteins and cellular structures by biophysicists,
 biochemists (inc. structural biologists) and physiologists.

 Fluctuations in extracellular osmolality elicit transmembrane water and solute
 fluxes that profoundly perturb cell structure, cytoplasmic composition and cell
 function. Sensors, transducers and regulators ameliorate the consequences of
 those perturbations by modulating the accumulation and release of selected
 solutes, the (macro) molecular composition of the cytoplasm and the skeletal
 structures of the cell.

 Mechanobiology is not only crucial for cell volume regulation but key to a wide
 range of physiological processes and involves sensing of forces such as osmotic
 pressure, membrane stretch, vibration and touch, areas that are included in the
 program.
