Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

On behalf of the COST Action (CA15214) & Local organizer Institute of Molecular Genetics, it is my great pleasure to invite you to Prague which will host the EuroCellNet Workshop 2017.

The workshop covers following topics:

1) Biophysics of cell and tissue structure
2) Structural analysis of biomolecules involved in mechanobiology
3) New methodologies to study mechanobiology of cells and tissues
4) Mechanobiological principles of rare and common diseases.

The aim of the workshop is to allow all interested parties to present their data and seek for prospective collaboration and networking. An extra space will be allocated for early career researchers.

Our capital, Prague, is a charming city situated in the very heart of Europe. It has a rich history, magnificent architecture (known as the city of "hundred spires") and a unique culture influenced by  various styles that have appeared over the centuries. The city has hosted or has been a "beloved" place for famous personalities like J. Kepler, W. A. Mozart, R. Descartes, P. I. Tchaikovsky, A. Einstein, F. Kafka and many others. Prague was  also birthplace of five Nobel laureates - the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1959 was awarded to Jaroslav Heyrovsky for his discovery and development of  polarograpic methods and in 1947 the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to Carl and Gerty Cori.

Prague is the seat of the Charles University, the oldest university in Central and Eastern Europe. Founded in 1348, the University has become the centre of education and science for the whole region. The discipline of microscopy has a long tradition within the Academy of Sciences, which  is also seated in Prague.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Prague in March 2017.
