The Development Journal Meeting 2022 from The Company of Biologists


This meeting will be the fifth iteration of this highly successful Journal Meeting, which has been running every two years since 2014 (including virtually in 2020). Over the past four events, this meeting has brought together a diverse group of researchers (both in terms of topic and demographics) united in their desire to better understand human development, and to do so using human cells and tissues. Since the first meeting in 2014, there have been huge advances in the field, driven largely by technological advances such as organoid culture and single cell sequencing, and there has been significant expansion in the range of questions that can be now addressed using human systems. It is therefore more important than ever to provide a forum for researchers to come together and discuss the latest advances, and remaining challenges, in the field.

This meeting aims to bring together researchers working on a diverse set of questions - from early cell fate choices in the human embryo to tissue organogenesis in all three germ layers, from epigenetic and other mechanisms underlying stem cell pluripotency and differentiation to methods for visualising and analysing the entire human embryo.

Further information on speakers and a draft programme can be found on The Company of Biologists event page.
