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.
