Join the IvC

Dear Colleague,

we cordially invite you to join The Invadosome Consortium.

The Invadosome Consortium (IvC) is an international, open network of laboratories interested in cell adhesion and tissue invasion. Our specific aim is the promotion of scientific knowledge, particularly in the field of invadopodia and podosomes. Our activities include meeting organization, generating a knowledge base for adhesion research and the exchange of trainees, graduate students and postdocs.

Both private individuals and corporate entitites of any nationality can apply for membership, on the condition that they take an interest in the activities of the IvC. There are no fees for membership in the IvC, and you will be free to withdraw at all times by sending a respective letter to the IvC Board.

The IvC offers regular membership for primary investigators of invadosome-oriented labs and associate membership for postdocs from otherwise non-invadosomal labs or for newcomers to the field. We thus hope to encourage especially young scientists to enter the field and take an active part in its development.


For admission as a member of the Invadosome Consortium please send your CV, current contact and mailing address, and a short statement indicating your area of research interest and expertise (preferably by e-mail) to:

Stefan Linder or Bojana Gligorijevic

You will be notified about your acceptance by mail via a letter from the Invadosome Consortium within 4 weeks after the membership application has been received.

Looking forward to welcoming you as a new member of the IvC.


Sara Courtneidge and Stefan Linder
