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.

Tissue Morphogenesis: interplay between genetics and mechanics

The general objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers interested in interdisciplinary approaches to tissue morphogenesis.

Topics/methods will include mechano-chemical patterning and regulation, gene regulation of/by mechanics, imaging/probing biochemical signaling and mechanics, integration of genetics/biochemistry/mechanics in theoretical models.
