Abstract deadline fast approaching: BMP Signalling in Cancer

Posted by on January 8th, 2016

BMP Signalling in Cancer 15—17 March 2016 St. Catharine’s College, Cambridge, UK Join the Biochemical Society in exploring the mechanisms of BMP signal transduction and regulation of signalling, and discussing how genetic and epigenetic alterations result in aberrant signalling and how this leads to cancer. The BMP signalling pathway is a key therapeutic target and we[…]

2016 Workshop – Tissue mechanics in morphogenesis: Focus on theoretical modeling – May 9-13, 2016, Paris

Posted by on October 9th, 2015

We are happy to announce the forthcoming workshop on « Tissue mechanics in morphogenesis: Focus on theoretical modeling ». This is an informal workshop open to anyone, theorist or experimentalist, who is developing or is using theoretical models to understand tissue mechanics during morphogenesis. How tissues acquire and maintain their shape is a crucial question[…]
