IUBMB Focused Meeting on Emerging Concepts of the Neuronal Cytoskeleton
About the workshop

Cytoskeletal dynamics is at the core of the most essential questions in cellular neurobiology, such as mechanisms of axon growth in development and in response to injury, or mechanisms of synapse formation and stabilization. Cytoskeletal dynamics is also a key element of intracellular transport, which is critical for axonal development and neurotrophic signaling, but which is also disrupted in many, if not all currently known neurodegenerative diseases. Consequently, the cytoskeleton is a promising and emerging target for the development of novel therapeutic approaches to treat neurodegenerative diseases and to promote axon regeneration after traumatic injury. Recent advances in imaging, genetics and proteomics have catalyzed exciting new progress. However, fundamental questions about how cytoskeletal dynamics are orchestrated and regulated in differentiation, development and disease remain unanswered. This workshop will explore the latest findings on this exciting topic and will address several features involved in cytoskeleton function in nerve cells such as microtubules and actin microfilament regulation in neurons, neuronal differentiation and polarity acquisition, neuronal trafficking and transport, cytoskeleton in disease and injury, cytoskeleton dynamics during nervous system development with emphasis in neuronal migration and axonal guidance and the role of cytoskeleton in synapses formation and dysfunction associated to neurodegenerative diseases.
