DANDRITE Affiliated Researcher Assoc. Prof. Felicity Davis and Dr. Silke Chalmers are helping to organize the Emerging Concepts in Cell and Developmental Biology Meeting, which will take place in Aarhus from 20-23rd September.

The program includes virtual talks by Edith Heard (EMBL) and Prachee Avasthi (Arcadia Science) as well as in-person presentations by Melissa Little (reNEW), Marta Shahbazi (LMB), Shankar Srinivas (Oxford), Michael Stumpf (Univ. of Melbourne) and Vaishnavi Ananthanarayanan (EMBL-Australia). Session topics are diverse and range from “New Methods in Cell and Developmental Biology” to the “Theory of Living Systems”.

In addition to the strong scientific program, the meeting will have discussions on the environment in which we practice science. There will have break-out sessions on “Issues Facing Early-Career Researchers”, “The Future of Publishing” and “Equity, Diversity and Inclusion”. At the end of the meeting, these topics will be brought together in a seminar by the Living Institute on how to create meaningful change within academic systems.

Participants will also enjoy welcome drinks at the Natural History Museum and dinner at ARoS!

Early bird registration: before 6th June (or until fully booked*)
