Upcoming Meetings & Schedule   Location and Directions   Steering Committee
2008-9 Meetings:
April 17, 2009 Richard McIntosh has agreed to give our Keynote lecture -- he'll give a full-length seminar.
We are planning four fifteen-minute talks by Chicago Cytoskeleton students/post-docs followed by the Keynote lecture. We'll be choosing some of the student/post-doc talks from the March abstracts/posters, so if you've got something exciting and would like to be considered for a talk, please send your abstract to hgoodson at nd.edu by March 9!
March 20, 2009 5 regular talks followed by POSTER SESSION
Everyone is invited to give new life to an older poster (think of all those ASCB and Biophysics posters you have!) or try out a new one! We'll make a meeting booklet containing all the abstracts, so please send your tile, author list and abstracts to Holly Goodson (hgoodson at nd.edu) ASAP with the subject line "CC abstract." The deadline for having your abstract included is March 9 (two weeks).
