June 26-July 2, 2016 – ICISE – Quy Nhon, Viet Nam

This conference will cover the fundamentals, recent advances and emerging issues related to mechanobiology. It will provide a unique opportunity to advance knowledge and understanding in the area of force-sensing in biology. This field intrinsically implies interdisciplinary approaches combining biology with physics, optics and computer modeling. Moreover, mechanobiology is being increasingly appreciated as being of primary importance in a plethora of biological processes, including development and cancer.

Sessions will give a large part to oral presentations selected on abstracts

Financial support available for a few Ph. D Students upon application.

Information’s on scientific program and registration:

Deadline for abstract submission in order to be selected for oral presentation and for Ph. Student applications: March 3 1st.

The conference will be organized at the International Center for Interdisciplinary Science and Education in Vietnam (ICISE) by Rencontres du Vietnam, a scientific non-profit organization. The venue is located at a beautiful beach in Vietnam, thus allowing participants also to enjoy the nature, culture while having rich scientific discussion. Information can be found here:

The meeting of the American Society of Cell Biology (ASCB) this year was held jointly with the International Federation of Cell Biology (IFCB), from December 6-10, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. As the premier meeting for biomedical research worldwide, this was a great opportunity to learn about the latest research in your field and network with leaders and peers in core cell biology, biophysics, neuroscience, stem cells, and genomics, to name a few.  It was also be a great occasion to promote cell biology as a world science.
