Cellular polarity involves the asymmetric organization of different cellular components to enable specialized functions. An ancient feature of all eukaryotic cells, polarity is essential for the formation of tissues and organs. A broad range of challenges regarding cell polarity include basic mechanisms, regulation, and role in nutrient transport, as well as cellular signaling, division, surface expression patterns and motility. Inheritable and acquired polarity defects have been described in many human and animal diseases, including cancer. This conference will bring together researchers from various disciplines in the field of cell polarity, including biophysics, cell biology, physiology, theory, genetics, and pathobiology, to share their science and discuss unresolved questions. We aim for participants to come away with new ideas born from different perspectives and new collaborations to advance their research.

Janelia will cover lodging and meals for all participants, and travel support is available to those in need (please indicate need in that portion of the application). Participants are expected to stay for the duration of the workshop and will also have an opportunity to extend their stay for continued discussion and collaborative time. 

The meeting will begin at 6pm ET on the first day and end by 2pm ET on the last.

Application closed.

Please note: Because Janelia conferences are intentionally small and selective, we may not be able to accommodate all applicants. We strive for as broad a representation across labs as possible and therefore may limit participation to one person per group. Preference is given to applicants who are active researchers in the field and intend to present their work as a poster or selected talk.
