The life sciences find themselves at an exciting juncture where synergistic interactions between disciplines – particularly those using mathematical modeling and physical analyses - bring novel insights onto important biological questions. The major objective of this EMBO Workshop is to bring together an interactive group of leading scientists from different disciplines whose laboratories are at the forefront on cell, molecular and developmental biology. It is an intentionally interdisciplinary meeting designed to foster discussion and interaction.
This EMBO Workshop takes place at three-year intervals and past editions have demonstrated that their unique flavour generates a dynamic and lively atmosphere of discussion and exchange and long-lasting interactions among participants.
In addition to the invited speakers, select abstracts will be chosen for short talks and there will be poster sessions. The EMBO Workshop is limited to 100 participants on a first come first served basis.
Themes covered include:
- From cells to systems
- Cell polarity, cytoskeleton and cell cycle
- Cell cycle control
- Genomes and Epigenetics
- Heritable states and cell fate
- Systems and Modeling
- Systems biology and Development
- Aging, stem cells and regeneration
- Feedback controls in molecular biology
