MBI Current Topic Workshop on Axonal Transport and Neuronal Mechanics
Month: November 2014
Date: November 3--7
Name: MBI Current Topic Workshop on Axonal Transport and Neuronal Mechanics
Location: Mathematical Biosciences Institute, The Ohio State University, Jennings Hall 3rd Floor, 1735 Neil Ave., Columbus, Ohio.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together leading cell biologists, engineers, physicists, and mathematicians to openly discuss exciting new findings, long-standing questions, and the future of our field. The timeliness of this meeting and its relevance to the mission of the MBI is most evident from three recent reviews by the organizers (Bressloff and Newby, 2013; Franze et al., 2013; Suter and Miller, 2011). In brief these reviews discuss the emerging role of forces in axonal elongation, mathematical models that have been developed to study the contribution of axonal transport to elongation, and the importance of developing mathematical models to study neuromechanics.
