Mechanics of development

Mechanical forces are critical for embryonic development – yet very little is known about their roles. The meeting will focus on the role of mechanobiology in multiple aspects of embryonic development.

February 05, 2018 — February 07, 2018
The Royal Society at Chicheley Hall, Buckinghamshire, MK16 9JJ

Hands-on course on human pluripotent stem cell culture (IPSC/ESC)

This one-day practical course will provide laboratory based training sessions in stem cell based models and interactive discussions. Attendees will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in cutting-edge stem cell technologies, and best practices.
