Workshop on Chemistry and Biology of Microtubules and

Microtubule-interacting Agents. Last session of the meeting.

 

 

 

Microtubules the cytoskeleton are important cell components involved in mitosis, motion, transport of organelles, and signal transduction. Small molecules that interfere with microtubules represent one of the most successful families of chemotherapeutic agents to date.

 

The local organizing committee wants to organize a last session as a workshop focused on current fundamental research on microtubules and associated proteins and how these can be targeted by small molecules to elicit treatment responses in cancer and other diseases.


Invited speakers will present their prominent results in the synthesis and evaluation of microtubule targeting drug in this mini-workshop. The scientific committee welcomes both abstracts and oral presentations addressing these field

 

 

The workshop will take place on 5 April 2016 in Madrid, as the last session of the 2nd meeting of the COST Action CM 1407 Challenging organic syntheses inspired by nature - from natural products chemistry to drug discovery, which will allow to benefit all scientists of the action working in the field of microtubule-related research, from the latest advances in the synthesis of microtubule targeting agents. Scientists working in the field of microtubule especially those who are working at the interface of chemistry and biology, are welcome to attend.
