Cell survival depends on molecular trafficking.  Transport of macromolecules within neuronal axons and dendrites is one of the most remarkable examples of intracellular trafficking in biology, but many of the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Besides informing the logic of intracellular trafficking in general, an in-depth understanding of neuronal trafficking may also uncover vital clues related to human disease mechanisms. This meeting brought together aficionados of neuronal trafficking from around the world to share recent and unpublished insights into transport mechanisms, stimulating scientific discussions and collaborations. Additionally, we conveyed our collective enthusiasm for this topic to students, postdoctoral fellows, and other junior investigators.
