EMBO/EMBL Symposium: Tissue Self-Organisation - Challenging the Systems
This EMBO|EMBL Symposium aims to understand the
mechanisms 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.
- Symmetry breaking in cells and tissues
- Collective cell behaviour
- Tissue mechanics
- Pattern formation
- Modeling self-organisation
- Synthetic biology
- Organogenesis and organoids
