119th ITC:
Tissue formation and regeneration: from molecules to models

Formation of body structures during embryonic development and regeneration share a common endpoint. Yet the starting conditions and scale during which patterning and cell decisions are executed vary enormously. Recently, we have made progress in our molecular understanding of embryonic patterning and regenerative mechanisms along with exciting developments in organoid biology. To discuss these topics, we would like to bring together participants working on patterning dynamics, signal interpretation in multiple developmental and regenerative contexts.

Quantitative modelling is and will be making an important contribution to fuel ideas and provide predictive hypotheses and therefore will constitute a significant part of this meeting. We hope you share our interest in exploring this area in the intimate setting of the 119th International Titisee Conference.
