NIH Motility Interest Group (MIG)
- SCOPE OF INTEREST
- To bring together researchers studying how cells and the molecules and organelles within the cells move. We wish to foster fruitful interactions among the many intramural scientists who use a variety of techniques and approaches to study cell motility in different systems and at different levels of organization.
A brief survey has shown a wide range of research interests among the members,
including subjects such as unconventional myosins, kinesin, axon genesis, etc.
- SCHEDULE OF MEETINGS
- First Mondays of every month (with a few exceptions) at 4 p.m. in the Bunim
Room Building 10, Room 9S235. There is a two-month break (July and August) for the summer.
- FORMAT OF MEETINGS
- At each meeting, there are two invited speakers, each giving a 1/2-hour informal
presentation. A reception follows the presentations for members to mingle. Thus far, there have been about 40-50 people on average attending the monthly
meeting. Talks have included topics such as Amoeba myosins, kinesin and outer hair cell motility.
