The EMBO workshop on Cell Migration, held in Heidelberg this May, highlighted new trends in cell migration research, as well as the need to reassess current dogma. Key insights included altered ideas for the roles of Rac and inositol lipids, for the ways that groups of cells coordinate their migration and for the importance of considering movement from both a cell biological and mechanical perspective.
