Developing brains conference 2024

How can a single cell give rise to complex formations such as the central and peripheral nervous systems? This is the over-arching question in neural developmental biology. Knowledge of how such intricate systems are assembled gives a crucial understanding of their structure and function and important insight into the etiology of some of our most devastating diseases.

The 11th edition of the KI Conference “Developing Brains", which will take place at the Eva & Georg Klein lecture hall at Biomedicum, Karolinska Institutet, Thursday, 3 October 2024, will gather some of the leading scientists working on critical questions ranging from transcriptional heterogeneity of neural cell types, gene regulatory networks, circadian rhythm, and mechanical forces involved in their development, their interplay with the vasculature, and how CRISPR screens can identify key players in their development and physiology.
