About the Workshop
How cells accomplish faithful chromosome segregation and how missegregation impacts cell physiology remain areas of intense research. This EMBO Workshop covers a broad range of topics from the mechanistic basis of chromosome segregation to the clinical implications of aneuploidy. Several breakthrough discoveries have recently emerged at the interface between fields, linking chromosome segregation and aneuploidy to DNA repair and replication, innate immune response, senescence and more. To foster the scientific exchange between fields, this EMBO Workshop will bring together researchers from all over the world and from all areas that converge on this theme to discuss their latest unpublished work in an open and friendly atmosphere.
- Building the mitotic spindle
- Chromosomes, centromeres, and kinetochores
- Mechanics of chromosome segregation
- Consequences of aneuploidy and polyploidy
- Aneuploidy in meiosis and embryogenesis
- Aneuploidy and cancer
As this meeting was heavily oversubscribed, we will hold this workshop in a hybrid format. All presentations will be broadcasted live to a virtual audience and made available as a recording after the event.
All times in the program are in CET (Central European Time).
Registration via this website is required for virtual participation in the workshop.

About EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timeliness, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be female).
Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
