This one day international symposium is supported by a mini-grant from Biophysical Society (USA) , Department of Biotechnology (Government of India) and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. This symposium aims to bring together Indian researchers, postdocs, students and selected international researchers working in the fields of microtubule and microtubule based motor proteins. This event would provide a platform for many young researchers, postdocs and students to discuss their work and explore collaborations and networking with leading national and international researchers in the field. The symposium will consists of multiple oral presentations as well as a poster session to highlight and discuss new results of participants. Some of the submitted abstracts will be considered for short oral presentations.
To promote interactions and collaborations among biophysicist from western region in India, we are offering lowest registration rates to students and faculty members of the biophysics-pashchim member institutes i.e. IIT Bombay, TIFR Mumbai, NCL, IISER Pune and ACTREC.
To enhance interaction among biophysicist, we encourage poster presentation by students and researchers using various biophysical methods, tools and techniques to study biological systems/phenomena at molecular and cellular scales.
