Neural Stem Cells in Development and Disease

Organisers: Silvia Marino and Kate Storey

Date: 7th - 10th February 2010

Location: Wiston House, Steyning, West Sussex, UK

This inter-disciplinary meeting brings together clinicians investigating cancers and developmental defects of the CNS and researchers working on the regulation of neural progenitor cells in invertebrate and vertebrate contexts.

We aim to define similarities/differences between cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating neural progenitor cells in developing, adult and cancerous tissue and to increase our understanding of how cancer stem cells and neural developmental defects arise.

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.
