Event Type: Conference
Location: Edinburgh, UK
Registration Deadline: May 28, 2012
Abstract Submission Deadline: None
Description of event:
Clare Blackburn and Val Wilson (MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine
Determining the origin of tissue
is key to our understanding of developmental biology
. This meeting will focus
on how and when self-renewing tissue stem cells
arise during embryonic development. We will discuss common features between different stem cell
lineages, and examine how modelling can inform in vivo
studies. Join us in Edinburgh to learn more, exchange ideas and accelerate discoveries with leading scientists in this field.

The Quincentenary Building, Surgeons' Hall is situated at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Approximately 10 minutes walk from Princes Street and Edinburgh Castle, the building's original stonework has been retained and blended with a modern design of granite and steel, creating a wonderful combination of old and new.
Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is easy to reach by air, rail and road. In the shadow of Edinburgh Castle, the ancient buildings at the top of the Old Town ramble down the spine of the Royal Mile to the splendid Palace of Holyroodhouse and across the Princes Street gardens lies the elegant Georgian New Town, teeming with shops and restaurants.
