About the Workshop

Workshop illustration

This EMBO Workshop is the premier venue to bring together the fields converging on aneuploidy, including chromosome copy number variation, chromosomal abnormalities, chromosome missegregation, and mitotic failure. Aneuploidy is one of the most prominent hallmarks of cancers, yet a causative role is still a matter of active research. Further, inborn chromosome number imbalance such as in trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) or XYY syndrome are a direct consequence of germ-line derived chromosome segregation defects. Mechanisms of chromosome segregation and failure thereof has its origins in many aspects of the cell division cycle that include chromosome architecture, chromosome conhesion and condensation, centromere and kinetochore assembly, spindle function, and centriole and centrosome function. This workshop aims to interface between these fields. We mix basic, fundamentals with applied and preclinical work in an open friendly environment, bringing together scientists from all career levels, from anywhere in the world in an intimate venue mixing short talks and posters with main presentations by world experts.

Selection criteria

Participants will be admitted based on their track record and publication record in the field or based on their motivation to attend for junior scientists. Everyone is expected to be an active scientist within the broad theme of the field. We do encourage participation of those that have a peripheral research line as this will complement the meeting.

We have 19 speaker slots available selected from abstracts that will be selected on the basis of scientific area, to establish a balance in representation across the areas of basic mechanistic cell/molecular biology through clinical aneuploidy. We seek to have around 50 precent representation from students and post-doctoral researchers as well as good representation of the international community while maintaining gender and geographic balance.

Abstract guidelines

Please submit a brief (max 300 words) abstract outlining key aims, results and implications of your research.
