Cells under Pressure


The Centre of Genome Engineering and Maintenance (CenGEM) at Brunel University London will be running a free of charge"Cells Under Pressure" two-day workshop.

Our world, our lifestyles and our bodies assault our tissues, cells and genome constantly, over our life-span. However, we have evolved complex coping mechanisms that protect and repair damage. Nevertheless, excessive damage can lead to tissue degeneration, premature ageing and disease with the possibility of transgenerational effects. Understanding how physical constriction, environmental exposure and a cells’ robustness withstand and repair external assault is a rapidly developing topic. It is the interface of biology with other disciplines such as engineering, chemistry, computing and physics.

Thus, CenGEM, at Brunel University London are hosting a free two-day workshop to promote interest and development in this cutting-edge topic.
