Biomechanics across scales – molecules, cells, tissues

BIOTEC Forum 2014

Date:08.12.2014, 09:15 - 09.12.2014, 16:00
Speaker: see poster
Location: CRTD, Auditorium
Host: Stefan Diez, Stephan Grill, Jochen Guck

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! Register here

Deadline for abstract submission is end of October, registration is open until mid November. Amongst the abstract submissions we will select several for contributed short talks in addition to the invited speakers' 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.

Please do also register if you only want to attend the conference and don't want to submit an abstract.
