About the Conference

This conference will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the identification of Wnt-1 by bringing together researchers who founded
field and the young scientists who will be responsible for its future.

Wnt ligands are key regulators of development, stem cell biology and regeneration. The dynamic control of Wnt signaling regulates basic cellular processes including cell proliferation, differentiation, migration and apoptosis. Recent advances in our understanding of signaling mechanisms have provided the tools and conceptual framework for the analysis of Wnt deregulation in disease.

These exciting developments have led to the emergence of early-stage therapies for the treatment of disease.


• basic mechanisms of signal transduction and their role in development

• Wnt interactions with other signaling pathways

• human oncogenesis and other diseases

• therapeutic targeting and drug development

This conference will provide a unique opportunity for interaction between renowned and young scientists who have been attracted by the vibrancy of the field. Participants will have the opportunity to present and discuss their work during formal and informal sessions and at the poster displays.

Plenary lectures by Nobel-prize winning founders of the field will be complemented by presentations on biological mechanisms, stem cell biology and translational research.
