June 25 – 30 Mount Holyoke College, Massachusetts, USA
It’s back! After 4 years and a global pandemic, the Developmental Biology GRC is on.
This is the premier, international scientific conference for the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished developmental biology research. The format prioritises discussion and informal interactions among scientists of all career stages after talks, at poster sessions, and during the meeting. We have a great range of speakers, concentrating on the latest developments in the field.
Registration and abstract submission is open:
Full speaker list and venue details are also available on the website.
Developmental Biology covers molecular, cellular, tissue and organismal levels, as well as theoretical concepts from physics and mathematics. The 2023 Gordon Conference topics include metabolic fluxes in development, transgenerational inheritance, gene regulation, dynamics of signaling at tissue scale, lineage tracing in the single-cell era, regeneration and tissue mechanics. We have also included a session highlighting the relevance of Developmental Biology to the development of diseases later in life. Because progress in Developmental Biology depends on cross-fertilization of ideas from complementary organisms, presentations will include studies in standard invertebrates such as Drosophila and C. elegans, classic vertebrate models including zebrafish, Xenopus and the mouse, as well as plants, non-classical models and humans. Afternoons and late evenings will be reserved for presentation of posters and informal interactions. The relaxed atmosphere and the rural setting of the meeting will encourage stimulating discussions between established and junior investigators in all aspects of the field.
