Event Details

"Cell State Transitions in Development, Disease, and Regeneration"

This year's theme is intended to disseminate and integrate new advances in mechanobiology, developmental biology, single-cell technologies, bioimaging, and synthetic biology, with the ultimate goal of engineering better biological systems to transform our understanding of the rule of life, as well as translating discoveries in ways that ultimately benefit human health.  Recently, many new advances have been achieved in these areas, allowing us to develop integrative approaches in understanding cell state transitions in development, disease, and regeneration.  Within this central theme, investigators from diverse fields will come together in one room to exchange ideas and brainstorm new integrative strategies for pushing this field forward.
