Cover picture: Traces of moving fruit fly larvae. Cellular processes in the brain steer the movements of fruit fly larvae. To study these processes, biologists and computer scientists have developed a technique which enables them to analyse precisely the behaviour of these minute organisms. Each colour marks the path of a larva.

Cells in Motion highlights Symposium

Münster, 2 September 2019

We cordially invite everyone interested to come! Our scientists will present their innovative approaches and exciting research findings in the interdisciplinary field of cell dynamics and imaging. In the following ceremonial programme, members and longstanding supporters of our Cluster will share their personal "Cells in Motion moments" and will introduce the new directions for the future. We will enjoy the evening with a food truck and music.
