There is no life without movement, at all levels of metazoan organization, from individual cells to the animal form. Cells move using filaments that make up the so-called cytoskeleton. You can learn more about how cells use the cytoskeleton to move in the following tour of images and videos produced in the Vic Small lab in Salzburg and Vienna.
Vic Small and his research group have been engaged in studies on the cytoskeleton and cell motility since the 1970’s.
From 2004 on, the Small group was part of the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, in Vienna/Austria.
