Neurogenesis Conference - Implications for Lifelong Development and Disease
2016-03-02 to 2016-03-05
Cancun, Mexico
Neural development is not restricted to embryonic or early postnatal stages but continuous throughout life in the mammalian brain. This conference will bring together leaders from diverse fields such as embryonic cortical development, adult neurogenesis, human imaging, and stem cell-based neural disease modelling to discuss recent advances in understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating neural stem cell activity, neuronal specification and functional significance of circuitries modified by the addition of new neurons. In addition, translational perspectives and implications for disease modelling will be covered. link

The Stem Cell Niche - Development & Disease
2016-05-22 to 2016-05-26
Copenhagen, Denmark
The aim of the conference is to provide a niche for presentations of the latest basic research in stem cell and developmental biology and to stimulate exchange of ideas by providing ample time for both formal and informal discussions. The conference theme is the concept of the “niche”, in the broadest possible sense of the word, encompassing all sources of inputs stem and progenitor cells receive from their environment to expand or differentiate. This topic is both important and timely in light of the need for improved therapies against devastating diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, neurodegenerative and cardiovascular disorders. It is difficult to predict which basic research will lead to major medical breakthroughs, so future applications in medicine will rely on continued strong basic research. link

Shaping Life—SFDB Meeting
2016-05-24 to 2016-05-27
Marseille, France
Understanding how tissues grow, acquire their form and function, and are assembled to constitute a living organism is one of the great frontiers in science.
By integrating genetics, molecular biology, physiology and anatomy, as well as physics, mathematics and computational science, Developmental Biology is at the forefront to understand this process and the pathologies associated to its deregulation. From gene regulation to evolution, this meeting will bring together the best experts , as well as early career scientists, to share their latest data and expose how modern approaches of developmental biology crack the mysteries that Shape Life.
Time will be devoted for debate to generate new ideas and new concepts. link
