On May 29 at the Osaka University Hospital, Japan, the "Organelle Zones" research grant group (see organized a one day symposium for its own members and four guest speakers, with about 60 attendees. The research group studies three different ways in which regions within organelles carry out functions distinct from other parts of the organelle. Work at this sub-organellar level is increasingly recognised as an important aspect of cell biology. The group's projects are divided into these themes with 9 Principal Investigators and 18 Co-Investigators over 5 years. The symposium, followed a similar meeting in 2018, and had 4 external speakers and 4 internal members of the consortium. The talks were divided into three sessions, each show-casing one way of sub-compartmentalising organelles into zones.
