Summary of Meeting:
· To visualize and dissect sites of signaling during cell migration. · To elucidate the mechanisms by which adhesions form and release. · To integrate structural and molecular information to develop mathematical models for migration related processes. · To characterize the migratory processes in development, inflammation, and cancer. · To determine the mechanisms by which the component processes of migration are integrated. · To foster interactions among the different areas of migration related research. · To identify barriers to progress and strategies to overcome them. · To foster multidisciplinary approaches.
