BIOTEC Forum 2014

„Biomechanics across scales – molecules, cells, tissues“

8-9 December 2014

The BIOTEC Forum 2014 "Biomechanics across scales - molecules, cells, tissues" brings together international and local experts in the areas of biomechanics, biophysics, cell and developmental biology. The focus will be on biomechanical processes that are at work on different scales. The goal is to present current developments in this area and to identify commonalities and differences of biomechanical processes independent of scale. Specific topics covered include molecular force generation, the cytoskeleton, cell mechanics, mechanonsensitivity and tissue mechanics - a spectrum that reflects the expertise of biomechanics research in Dresden.

Starting in 2007, the BIOTEC Forum has become an annual open meeting, discussing hot topics in one or more of the research areas represented at the BIOTEC Center of the TU Dresden. The format of the meeting is such that internationally renowned speakers at the forefront of their respective research fields will present and discuss recent scientific advances. The meeting is fully open to local and external scientists, with no conference fee being taken. Own contributions can be made within a postersession

Registration and abstract submission for the BIOTEC Forum is now open. There is no registration fee for the conference!

However, to help us organise, please register until November 20, 2014*. We, herein, also like to invite you to submit an abstract for the Poster Session. Posters should present scientific work related to the topic of the BIOTEC Forum and it is planned to upgrade a small number of poster submissions to short talks.
Register here

*Registration deadline extended until December 1, 2014. Please note that poster abstract submitted after November 20, 2014 may not be upgraded to short talks!

We plan a conference get-together on Monday evening after a stroll over the christmas market - this is a great opportunity to mingle with the speakers in an informal setting.
