Description of the meeting :

The ITMO of Cellular Biology, Development and Evolution (BCDE) and the societies of Cell and Developmental Biology (SBCF and SFBD) are pleased to announce their meeting:

Developmental and Cell Biology of the Future

This meeting will cover the most recent advances in key aspects of developmental and cell biology. The main aim of the meeting is to gather accomplished researchers and the next scientists’ generation to discuss and define tomorrow’s key aspects of developmental and cell biology. The desire of the organizers is to carry out an open discussion to stimulate innovation and improve transversality and ethic. On this spirit, the meeting will dedicate a major session to discuss about “The Future of Cell and Developmental Biology”, including several board members of the SBCF and SFBD.
