Spindle Working Group Meeting

Date & Time

Center for Computational Biology, Biophysical Modeling Group will hold the third meeting of the Spindle Working Group at the Flatiron Institute, 162 Fifth Avenue, 7th Floor Classroom, New York, NY 10010 on July 1-3, 2019.

The spindle is the cellular structure that separates chromosomes in dividing cells. Understanding it, requires elucidating the complex interplay between mechanics, biochemistry, and active cellular force generators.

For the third time our international, interdisciplinary team of spindle experts will convene at CCB.
