An interdisciplinary workshop on experimental measurements and theoretical modelling to further our understanding of cells, their inner workings and interactions with their surroundings. This EMBO workshop will bring together the best scientific minds from different backgrounds to exchange ideas and discuss the latest results and future directions. We particularly encourage the emerging generation of bright young scientists to participate.
