Mechanobiology of Cancer Summer School 2019

The MECHANO·CONTROL consortium, led by several
research institutions across Europe, is launching a
Summer School that will be taking place between 17-20 of September 2019 at the Eco Resort in La Cerdanya.

The aim of the summer school is to provide training on mechanobiology, and specifically its application to breast cancer.

This school will include lectures as well as practical workshops in different techniques and disciplines, ranging from modelling to biomechanics to cancer biology.

There will be scientific sessions in the morning, mixing 6 keynote speakers with 18 short talks selected from abstract submissions by junior scientists attending the school. In the afternoon, there will be 2-3-hour practical workshops, given by scientists from the MECHANO·CONTROL consortium. The course will also include leisure activities.

Attendance to the Summer School is open to all students, post-docs, and professionals interested, although priority will be given to junior scientists (up to post-doctoral stage).
