EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Tissue Self-Organisation: Challenging the Systems

Dates: 11 - 14 Mar 2018Registration: 31 Jan 2018Abstract:  13 Dec 2017Event website: www.embo-embl-symposia.org/symposia/2018/EES18-01/index.htmlWhy attend?This EMBO/EMBL symposium aims at mechanistic understanding of self-organising properties of multi-cellular systems. One of the defining features of living systems is their capacity to break symmetry and self-organise to form reproducible shapes and patterns. However, its mechanistic understanding remains a challenge as it requires a joint effort of multi-disciplinary teams. This Symposium will bring together those working in distinct disciplines such as cell and developmental biology, tissue biophysics, theoretical modeling, organoids and synthetic biology, and provide a platform to discuss and identify key approaches and future collaborations. Who should attend?Researchers working on both the mechanisms and manipulation of tissue morphogenesis, using in vivo animal models and ex vivo organoid approaches.Contact: events@embl.deLocation: EMBL, Heidelberg, GermanyWebsite: www.embl.de
