#492 - Cell Adhesion and Migration (II) (15D12)
This session will focus on experimental and/or theoretical aspects of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell adhesion/migration. Appropriate papers include those addressing fundamental molecular mechanisms of cell-cell and/or cell-matrix interactions in two or three dimensional structures, as well as the roles of these cellular processes in tissue engineering, cell physiology or biotechnology. Papers may also include studies of matrix remodeling (proteolysis, contraction, synthesis), matrix-driven phenotype, or tissue architecture regulation of cellular processes, as well as evaluation of critical design parameters for controlling cell-cell or cell-matrix interactions for material design.
