The development of new technologies has long been a driving force in the study of mechanobiology. This workshop will bring together an interdisciplinary group of early to senior level researchers to discuss cutting-edge in vivo, in vitro, and in silico techniques and how these methods can be applied to cancer research, diagnostics, and therapeutics.

Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. The schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available shortly. 

Call for posters - deadline 30 April 2018

There will be a poster session on Wednesday 20 June 2018. If you would like to apply to present a poster please submit your proposed title, abstract (not more than 200 words and in the third person), author list, name of proposed presenter and institution to the Scientific Programmes team. Please include the text 'Poster abstract submission: cancer mechanobiology' in the email subject line. Please note that places are limited and posters are selected at the scientific organiser's discretion. Poster abstracts will only be considered if the presenter is registered to attend the meeting.
