2014 CMBE CONFERENCE
January 7 - 11, 2014
Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines
La Jolla, CA
From Morphogenesis to Nuclear Mechanotransduction'
The theme for the 2014 CMBE Conference is‘Multi-scale Mechanobiology: From Morphogenesis to Nuclear Mechanotransduction’. Our expanding understanding of the role that mechanical perturbations play in every aspect of life, from morphogenesis to chromatin remodeling, motivated the mission of this conference. Moreover, cell and molecular bioengineering technologies that allow us to probe and even control cell activity and the microenvironment at the molecular level and across length scales enables fundamental new studies in cell biology, drug discovery, and regeneration. We have planned a conference integrating both engineers and biologists to encourage sharing of ideas toward these common goals. Our choice of theme is intended to address the key problem of understanding how mechanical perturbations translate to changes in cellular activity, from the organismal to nuclear level. This problem cannot be solved by traditional strategies alone, and these new directions will shape the future of CMBE.
