Sponsored in part by the American Society for Cell Biology, the meeting took place at the picturesque Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw, NC. It was attended by scientists not only from the Research Triangle, but from 20 institutions all together.
The organizers recruited four outstanding faculty speakers, including Dyche Mullins who gave the keynote address. They also selected a fantastic line-up of trainee speakers who were engaging and expert, and spanned a great breadth of cytoskeleton biology.
aMDX post-doc Michael Werner was selected to present his work of the molecular mechanisms of cell shape change in cytokinesis. Other lab members presented posters.
A delicious lunch was served, refreshments were also available at a happy hour and during poster sessions, and attendees took home NC-made ceramic mugs. It was a tremendous success, again!
