III Cell MIgration Workshop


24th and 25th September 2024, Universidade Lusófona, Lisbon


This workshop will address the role of cell migration in different physiopathological processes, the different types of cell migration and the respective morphological, functional and molecular alterations involved.

We will also present the most commonly used cell-based techniques, including the wound-healing assay, chemotaxis, random single cell migration, cell invasion, as well as molecular tools and assays to dissect the mechanotransduction processes. Practical and laboratory classes will allow students to contact with key methodologies in the area.
