The ITMO "Immunology, Inflammation, Infectiology and Microbiology" and the ITMO "Cell Biology, development and Evolution" are co-organizing the symposium on “Mechanotransduction of Host-Pathogen Interactions”, to be held in Paris, France, on December 17th, 2018, under the auspices of the alliance Aviesan
This conference will focus on different aspects of mechanotransduction involved in processes designed or hijacked by bacteria and intracellular parasites during infection of host cells.
The goal is to cover this broad area of investigation by presenting a large spectrum of approaches, including role of mechanical and contractile forces exerted by the actin cytoskeleton, shear stress or membrane tension in signaling associated with microbial adhesion and invasion of host cells.
The meeting will take place in the Biopark Auditorium located in Paris 13, on December 17th, 2018.
A poster session will be organized from which few short talks will be selected for oral presentation.
Poster size is around 1 m x 1.8 m or 1.8 m x 1m .
Registration is free of charge but mandatory on the website
