The workshop will focus on the biophysics of the cytoskeleton and cell membrane in health and disease, with a particular focus on combining modelling and experimental approaches. Proposed topics include:
10:40 Martin Howard, JIC, Norwich: "A mechanical bottleneck in FcγR phagocytosis"
11:10 Christian Soeller, Exeter: "Imaging of small membrane bound compartments with optical super-resolution and electron microscopy"
11:40 Steve Royle, Warwick: "The role of actin in clathrin-mediated endocytosis in human cells"
12:10 Simon Johnston, Sheffield: "Actin and membrane dynamics in macrophages before and after phagocytosis"
13:40 Andrew Thorley, Imperial: "Modelling uptake and translocation of nanoparticles in the human lung"
14:10 Rhoda Hawkins, Sheffield: "The role of biopolymers in ingesting bugs"
14:40 David Richards, Exeter: "Engulfment rate and shape dependence in phagocytosis"
15:10 Coffee break
