About the Workshop

Workshop illustration

This EMBO Workshop will discuss cell fate decisions during the transition from pluripotency to lineage commitment in early development, the interactions of stem cells with their niches during lineage specification, and the spatiotemporal control of cell identity during the differentiation of somatic lineages and the germline. The complex multi-tissue interactions in organoids will be discussed as a novel experimental model for the understanding of patterning in the embryo, tissue morphogenesis and organogenesis. New insights into regenerative biology will be presented by investigating responses to tissue damage or loss and the developmental kinetics leading to aberrant phenotypes.

Selection criteria

Oral abstract submissions:

Abstracts will be selected for short talks on the basis of scientific impact, taking into account the career stage of the presenter, and with the aim of balancing scientific topic area, geographical locations and gender.

Poster abstracts submissions:

To be inclusive, a decision to restrict the number of poster presentations will only be made if the number of poster applications received by the DEADLINE exceeds the maximum available spaces.

Abstract guidelines

The abstracts should contain the following information:

Affiliations of authors

Body of abstract: 1 paragraph, citations and references are not allowed

Abstract should not exceed 150 words

Poster specifications

Travel grants

A limited number of travel grants are available for participants provided by EMBO and the Stem Cell Society Singapore (SCSS). Funds from the SCSS are specifically made available to early career researchers. Applicants do not need to apply separately for travel grants for this event but should indicate on the registration form if they wish to be considered for a travel grant. Selection of awardees is handled directly by the organizers who will notify all eligible participants. More information on EMBO Travel Grants is available at the EMBO Travel Grants' page.
