Mechanobiology at the Shard 2018

A Randall Institute | CMCB joint symposium

06 February 2018

Organised by:

Rob Cross (Centre for Mechanochemical Cell Biology, Warwick Medical School)

Mathias Gautel (Randall Institute, Kings College London)


Work at our two institutions aims to understand the contributions of mechanical and mechanochemical mechanisms to cell function. To learn about each other's work and to facilitate progress, we have organised this one day joint Symposium in Molecular and Cellular Mechanobiology, with support from Wellcome and from the British Heart Foundation. We will discuss topics ranging from single molecule dynamics of molecular motors to the mechanics of muscle contraction and cell crawling.

Home | Participants | Registration | Photos from 2017

Participation is open to all in the CMCB and in the Randall. PI registrations will take priority.


We have space for ~100 participants, so depending on the level of interest, we may have to restrict the number of people attending from each lab. There is no registration fee. Registration will close Friday Feb 03 2018.

We encourage everyone attending to submit an A4 1-page SCIENTIFIC ABSTRACT about their work. We will make these available in PDF format to participants. The Abstracts will not be made public.
