About the Workshop

This EMBO Workshop on “The molecular and cellular basis of regeneration and tissue repair” has become the key international meeting for scientists investigating basic biological questions in regeneration and repair using a whole animal or organ "systems" approach. It attracts scientists with diverse expertise using various models, from invertebrates to mammals, who would normally not meet. Each meeting approaches regeneration from different angles. This upcoming EMBO Workshop will address the cellular, molecular and genetic basis of regeneration focusing on fibrosis-free regeneration, insight from development supported by the latest technical tools and comprise a session on Philosophy of Regeneration. Chosen topics highlight how a comparative perspective of different model organisms and thinking “outside the box” about regeneration can propel our understanding of the field, stimulate discussion and development of new perspectives among attendees, and foster new collaborations. The overall goal of this EMBO Workshop is to significantly advance our understanding of how regeneration is coordinated in a whole animal or organ system so that those who work in non-regenerating systems may develop more effective therapeutic approaches to convert healing into regeneration.
