Biology and Physics Confront Cell-Cell Adhesion

14th October 2019   -   17th October 2019
Aussois, France


Cell-cell adhesion is the fundamental process that led to multicellular organisms. It is essential both for embryonic development and adult tissue homeostasis. This meeting will bring together biologists, biophysicists, soft matter physicists, and computational scientists to discuss the role of mechanics in cell-cell adhesion. We will confront how the different communities understand adhesion at the molecular, cellular, and tissue scales.
