Subcellular location of PKCalphaII-GFP (green) in Green Monkey COS-7 cells using laser scanning confocal microscopy two days after transfection. The actin cytoskeleton is stained with Texas Red-phalloidin and the endoplasmic reticulum (purple) identified with an antibody to calreticulin.

About the Cell Biology Theme Panel

The 15 members of each Theme Panel will meet, at least twice a year, to;

  • put forward ideas for Focused Meetings
  • consider proposals from other scientists within their field of expertise (referee the proposal)
  • highlight to the Meetings Board areas of hot science that should be in the programme
  • form part of the Science Advisory Committee for each Annual Meeting (BioScience)
  • report to the Meetings Board
  • develop interdisciplinary activities and collaborate with appropriate sister societies.

The Cell Biology Theme Panel is Theme Panel IV within the Biochemical Society. The group continues to represent broad interest in the general area of cell biology and plays a major role in organizing Society Meetings across diverse areas of cell biology research and education.

The Cell Biology Theme Panel welcomes suggestions for Biochemical Society meetings from all members of the scientific community. If you have an idea for a meeting, and wish to have an informal discussion with a member of a Theme Panel, you are welcome to contact that member. If you wish to submit a formal proposal for a meeting, complete the relevant form and forward it to [email protected].
