There is no life withÂout moveÂment, at all levÂels of metaÂzoan orgaÂniÂzaÂtion, from indiÂvidÂual cells to the aniÂmal form. Cells move using filÂaÂments that make up the so-called cytoskeleÂton. You can learn more about how cells use the cytoskeleÂton to move in the folÂlowÂing tour of images and videos proÂduced in the Vic Small lab in Salzburg and Vienna.
Vic Small and his research group have been engaged in studÂies on the cytoskeleÂton and cell motilÂity since the 1970âs.
From 2004 on, the Small group was part of the InstiÂtute of MolÂeÂcÂuÂlar BiotechÂnolÂogy of the AusÂtrian AcadÂemy of SciÂences, in Vienna/Austria.
