Description

2019 DevBioMed Symposium

On behalf of the Portuguese Society for Developmental Biology (SPBD) and the Champalimaud Foundation (CF), we invite you to attend the first DevBioMed Symposium – From Developmental Biology to Medicine and Back.

The ultimate goal of Developmental Biology is to understand how different cell types, tissues and organs arise from one single cell, the fertilized egg. By elucidating the mechanisms of cell growth, differentiation and morphogenesis during embryogenesis, as well as ageing and regeneration in postnatal life, Developmental Biology offers critical insights into numerous human diseases such as infertility, birth defects and cancer. In addition, developmental studies have fueled the fields of stem cell biology, organoid models and Regenerative Medicine, providing novel tools for biomedical research and drug discovery. Conversely, clinical descriptions of congenital anomalies have greatly advanced our understanding of basic developmental processes.

Counting with an outstanding panel of invited speakers, the DevBioMed Symposium aims at bringing together research scientists and clinicians to discuss the exciting crossroads between the fields of Developmental Biology and Medicine.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown on December 13th!
