EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Tissue Self-Organisation: Challenging the Systems

11 March 2018 - 14 March 2018

Heidelberg 69117, Germany

This EMBO/EMBL symposium aims at mechanistic understanding 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.
