Conference Brochure

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Synthetic Morphogenesis: From Gene Circuits to Tissue Architecture is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and will be held from Mar 17 - 20, 2019 at EMBL Advance Training Centre, Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany.

Conference Overview:
Morphogenesis, the generation of shape, is a topic of considerable interest in basic research with important implications in biomedicine. Across scales, from subcellular structures to multicellular systems shape is intimately linked with function. While traditional genetic approaches have allowed the identification of key components controlling individual morphogenetic processes, recent advances in synthetic biology are opening the possibility to engineer gene circuits, signal systems, and biomaterials to not only probe morphogenesis but also to re-construct it and direct it.

Synthetic morphogenesis is a novel and exciting field that requires collaboration among traditionally distinct scientific communities, from developmental biologists, to chemists and material scientists. This symposium will bring together scientists from these different disciplines to discuss the extent to which cells/tissues/organs can be built de novo starting from isolated components. 

Session Topics:
• Artificial cell/tissue
• Organoids
• Controlling tissues
• Patterning and self-organisation
• Mechanics
• Gene expression dynamics/gene circuits
