The series of Abercrombie meetings have been held since the death of Michael Abercrombie in 1979. Michael was a pioneer in the field of investigating cell behaviour using timelapse microscopy. Abercrombie meetings are held only every five years and therefore offer an excellent opportunity to review the major advances in our understanding of cell motility and look to the new emerging concepts in the field.
The previous 7 Abercrombie meetings have been extremely successful and have attracted significant numbers of attendees from the world-leading labs in the adhesion, migration and cytoskeleton fields to present their work in an extremely interactive and collaborative environment. The meeting provides an excellent platform for open and constructive discussions between researchers from world-leading labs focused on complementary areas of study using different types of methods and approaches from advanced microscopy to computational modelling.
The 8th Abercrombie meeting will be held from 11-14th September 2017 in Oxford and will address the key, exciting new findings and emerging approaches in the study of cell migration across a range of biological contexts, both in vitro and in vivo. Abstract Submission is currently open and will close on 20 July 2017.
The programme is not yet available but you can get an idea of the meeting from the 2012 programme displayed here.
