Information transfer is a central aspect of biology, and signaling within and between cells is a fundamental aspect of the functioning of multicellular organisms. It has long been established that signaling between cells requires specific and regulated mechanisms to transport signaling molecules and generate functional gradients to control processes such as axon guidance, chemotaxis, developmental differentiation and others. What has been less apparent is the fact that equally sophisticated and diverse mechanisms are almost certainly required for information transfer and signaling WITHIN cells. This is the central topic of the planned workshop.
Hoping to meet you at Maale HaChamisha.
