The Cytomeet is a well-established one-day meeting for the Swiss scientific community interested in mechanisms of cell migration in vivo and in vitro. It takes place on a Tuesday in January each year and had been originally established by Profs. Seebeck and Gehr and continued by Profs. Chiquet, Dräger and Niggli. Since 2014, Prof. Engelhardt has taken over the organization of the Cytomeet.

In keeping with the tradition of the Cytomeet, we invite every year an outstanding international scientist as Keynote speaker. Previous Keynote speakers include Sussan Nourshargh, Michael Sixt, Dietmar Vestweber,  Ben Nichols and Erik Sahai. Furthermore, scientists from all over Switzerland have the opportunity to present their work in a concise format. The attendance is free.
