26–27 July 2018 Mechbio Conference 2018: The Mechanome in Action
Gross Hall Conference Center, UC Irvine, USA
This symposium, a follow-up to the MechBio 2016 symposium at UCSD, will bring together researchers who work with biological systems at different length and time scales and use different methods to study mechanical signal transduction. The program will include keynote speakers, talks from early career scientists, and poster sessions. The conference will focus on encouraging collaboration between researchers in different fields (physics, biology, chemistry, math, medicine, and engineering). To this end, the organizer will offer a small number of “Opportunity Awards”. The awards will support travel for a team of two to three graduate students or postdocs to travel between labs to work on a new collaboration.
