Cell migration is an integrated process that requires the continuous, coordinated formation and disassembly of adhesions. These processes are complex and require a regulated interaction of numerous molecules, and the activation of specific signalling pathways. Even though understanding these processes is challenging, important insights are beginning to emerge, and the technology to facilitate significant advances in this area is now in place.
