Brain in different colors in slime.
Built by Clara Castelo-Branco using slime.

How can a single cell give rise to complex structures such as the central (brain/spinal cord) and enteric (brain in the gut) nervous systems? This is the overarching question in neural development; understanding how such intricate structures are assembled gives not only crucial knowledge about these nervous systems, but also important insight to the etiology of some of our most common diseases.

The 8th edition of the KI Conference “Developing Brains" gathers some of the leading scientists working on critical questions ranging from transcriptional heterogeneity of neural cell types, their specification and maturation, to migration, myelination and creation of mature neural circuits.

Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, the conference will take place on a hybrid format, both online and in person. Lectures are scheduled for 1-2 September between 14.00-18.30 CET (Stockholm).
