The 2014 Santa Cruz Developmental Biology Meeting

Investigator: Diana J. Laird, PhD
Sponsor: California Institute for Regenerative Medicine

Location(s): United States


The SCDB meeting has been a premier international forum for Developmental Biology research since 1992.  The 2014 meeting is themed "Frontiers of Development: Basic Meets Translational." This theme encapsulates recent trends toward convergence of the fields of developmental and stem cell biology to tackle clinically relevant problems.  The program will include invited talks on topics such as cell specification, morphogenesis, evo-devo, stem cell regulation and regenerative medicine.  The meeting will be held on the beautiful and sunny coastal campus of UC-Santa Cruz and is designed to foster interactions among scientists at all career stages from around the world.
