EMBO Workshop: Development and regeneration of the spinal cord
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
The spinal cord contains the nerves that allow us to sense our environment and respond to it by moving muscles. This region of the nervous system is generated over an extended period in a head to tail sequence and so is ideal for studying the temporal sequence of events that control neural differentiation. This field has made significant in roads into the identification of the genes that direct spinal cord development and determine how they work to generate and organize this critically important structure, moreover advances have also been made towards treatments of diseased and damaged spinal cord. The aim of the EMBO Workshop is to discuss recent advances and to bring together key scientists working in these fields to establish coherent networking interactions for this research community.
