MOLECULAR BASIS OF CELL AND TISSUE ORGANISATION - THEORETICAL AND
EXPERIMENTAL ASPECTS 

14-16 September 1997, Hulme Hall, 
University of Manchester, United Kingdom

Full details available at

A meeting aimed at promoting cross-disciplinary interactions between
experimentalists and theoreticians in different areas of biological
assembly and organisation, including the cytoskeleton, extracellular
matrix, cell adhesion and signalling, and wound healing and tumour
growth. Supported by the Wellcome Trust, Unilever, Smith and Nephew, 
and Procter and Gamble..
