Welcome to Signet, the Cell Signalling Network
SIGNET will provide a focus for the use of mathematical approaches to problems in the applied biological science of cell signalling. Importantly the Network will allow and encourage more UK mathematicians to engage in fundamental biology, facilitating the development of new mathematics to underpin a predictive biology of cell signalling. Specific objectives are to:
- establish and maintain a "Cell Signalling Network" with a balanced membership from biology and the mathematical sciences, facilitating the development of an active and cohesive cross-disciplinary community at the mathematics/systems biology interface.
- run a number of workshops at a variety of locations in the UK, both independently and as focus sessions embedded in larger biological and modelling meetings.
- generate new collaborative projects and develop techniques that cross the boundaries between disciplines and enhance our understanding of cell signalling. This will form the basis of major new submissions of collaborative proposals to the research councils addressing specific challenges in systems biology.
- report back to members and the wider community on network meetings and progress made within the Network.
- encourage new and less-established participants to contribute to and learn from the Network.
- establish a web-based resource for interdisciplinary research in cell signalling.
The Network has an associated managed mailing list.
