EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Organoids: Modelling Organ Development and Disease in 3D Culture

Dates: 10 - 13 Sep 2018   Event webpage: www.embo-embl-symposia.org/symposia/2018/EES18-08/index.html  Aim: The ability to grow human tissues from stem cells in 3D culture has the potential to revolutionise the drug discovery process and regenerative medicine. Building on a long tradition of cell and developmental biology knowledge, organoids resembling a variety of human tissues have been generated. This symposium will bring together the leading researchers in this field to establish a new research community and reveal parallels between various tissue models.  Contact: events@embl.de  Location: EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany  Website: www.embl.de
