An event entitled 'Morphogenesis and dynamics of multicellular systems' will take place from 7 to 9 September 2012 in Heidelberg, Germany.

The assembly of cells into multicellular tissues drives the formation of complex organ systems during embryogenesis. Dynamics changes in tissue organization underlie wound healing and regeneration, while a loss is a hallmark of cancer. The prospect of tissue engineering offered by new stem cell technology is likely to increase the demand for a quantitative understanding of tissue morphogenesis.

The event will address the most recent advances in light microscopy, in particular those allowing cell and developmental biologists to study the behaviours of signalling molecules, cells and complex tissues in living systems. Session topics include:
- generation and interpretation of long-range gradients;
- making decisions via cell-cell interactions;
- mechanical signalling during morphogenesis;
- intracellular responses and feedback systems;
- signal integration mechanisms.For further information, please visit: http://www.embl.de/training/events/2012/MOR12-01/index.html
