Invited Speakers

Stefan Diez

Prof. Diez leads his group at the B CUBE - Centre for Molecular Bioengineering, TU Dresden. His lab is interested in the development and the application of novel optical techniques to investigate molecular transport in cell biology and nanotechnology. In his talk he focused on cooperative effects in motor transport and cell motility.

Rod O'Connor

Dr. O'Connor leads the BioEPIX laboratory at the University of Limoges and the CNRS. He focuses on studying the biological effects of electromagnetic fields with imaging and biophotonics tools. His talk dealt with the effect of nanosecond pulsed electric fields on microtubule cytoskeleton in dividing cells.

Jelmer Lindeboom

Dr. Lindeboom works in the Ehrhardt laboratory at the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford, USA. In his talk he discussed how the cortical microtubule cytoskeleton acquires organization.
