Cell biology, cell migration and division, extracellular matrix, basement membrane
The course will provide introductions to the main cytoskeleton networks as well as to the physical and biochemical properties of extracellular matrices. It will cover general mechanisms of cell interaction with the matrix, migration and invasion in relevant microenvironment with a more particular focus on the role of cytoskeleton-based organelles in these basic cellular functions.
The general objective of this course is to understand the role of the cytoskeleton in cell interaction with the microenvironment at different levels: molecular, cellular and in the living organism.
Each participant will give a 10 minute oral presentation of his/her work (maximum 3 powerpoint slides) and will have 5 minutes to answer questions.
Successful completion of the course can count toward training hours (3ECTS or 20 hours) for French graduate schools such as "Complexité du Vivant" and "Frontières du Vivant" or 3 ECTS at Master program UPMC at Paris 6.
All lunches and 3 dinners will be provided by Institut Curie. For those who need it, lodging in double rooms will be provided by Institut Curie for the 7 nights (Wednesday April 23rd-Wednesday April 30th 2014). Participants' home laboratories are responsible for paying for travel. We advise participants living outside Paris and its area to plan to arrive on Wednesday morning April 23rd in the afternoon/evening and depart not before Wednesday April 30th in the morning.
22 participants will be selected among PhD and Master students of all nationalities on the basis of research interests and motivation statement.
