Welcome to the website of Cell Regulations in Division and Arrest Workshop 2007, hosted by Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology. First meeting on this topic held in March 2006 has achieved a considerable success and we are glad to present a successive scientific event.

Cell Cycle

Workshop Outline

The meeting will be an opportunity for researchers interested in how cells maintain the state of arrest or division and what would be the key molecules and cellular events to determine the fates of cells in regard with division and arrest. We hope that invited speakers and young enthusiastic audience will make a rare occasion for this emerging research area in Okinawa, a new innovative place for international research community.

In the 2007 workshop, we plan to expand one more day for the scientific sessions so that the meeting will be more relaxed and comfortable. The venue will be the OIST Seaside House located along the Onna Beach close to the future campus site. The hotel is 5 min by car from the venue. The seaside house has 22 twin bed rooms, which will be provided for the stay for students.
