Growth, Division and Differentiation: Understanding Developmental Control
Organisers: Anna Philpott and Nancy Papalopulu
Date: 18th – 21st September 2011
Location: Wiston House, Steyning, West Sussex, UK
To generate tissue mass and to adopt diverse functions, cells of the early embryo must grow, divide and ultimately differentiate. While pathways controlling these individual events have been well-characterised, we have much less understanding of the mechanisms co-ordinating these processes during embryogenesis.
The aim of this workshop was to bring together researchers studying cell growth, cell cycle and differentiation in diverse developmental models, to explore common control mechanisms uncovered using genetic, cell and molecular approaches.
Published Information from the Workshop
- During the workshop the early career scientists wrote a blog on the Node for the workshop each day.
- Helena Richardson and Philipp Kaldis wrote a meeting report and it was published in Development in January 2012.
