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.

  • 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.


About our Workshops

The Workshops provide leading experts and early career scientists from a diverse range of scientific backgrounds with a stimulating environment for the cross fertilization of interdisciplinary ideas. The programmes are carefully developed and are intended to champion the novel techniques and innovations that will underpin important scientific advances.

Apply for a Grant or Travelling Fellowship

The Company of Biologists provides funding to organisers of meetings, workshops and conferences in the fields covered by our journals, together with Travelling Fellowships for those wishing to make collaborative visits to other research laboratories.

Propose a new Workshop

If you have a vision for such a meeting but don’t have the time to arrange the logistics or raise the funding, then please contact us. We are seeking proposals for future Workshops and provide all necessary support.
