About the Workshop
The Latin American Developmental Biology Conference will bring together an interdisciplinary group of researchers with a shared focus on emerging issues in developmental biology. It will be held in the picturesque coastal city of Valparaiso, Chile, and is a shared effort of the Latin American Society for Developmental Biology (LASDB, 11th meeting), the International Society of Differentiation (ISD, 21st meeting), the Pan-American Society for Evolutionary Developmental Biology (PASEDB, 5th meeting), and the Chilean Society for Developmental Biology (SBDCh, inaugural meeting). The conference will contribute to a long tradition of training students, postdoctoral fellows and young researchers in Latin America and has a mandate to promote diversity and gender balance at all levels. It will showcase research in all areas of developmental biology, including self-organisation, morphogenesis and mechanics, genomic mechanisms of development, organ and systems development, regeneration, homeostasis, ageing and Evo-Devo. With a select group of invited speakers, 40% of short talks selected from participants, flash talks, poster sessions and various social activities, the conference aims to promote active discussions in a highly dynamic and interactive environment, favouring synergies of ideas and networking opportunities.
