Welcome to the Pigment Cell Developmental Biology Workshop 2013!
The Pigment Cell Developmental Biology Workshop is an opportunity for international researchers to meet and discuss the latest and best research on the development of the pigment cell in all species. The Pigment Cell Developmental Biology Workshop is the 2013 meeting of the IFPCS Group-of-Interest on “Pigment Cell Development” (http://www.ifpcs.org/index44.php), co-chaired by Bill Pavan, Robert Kelsh and Hiroaki Yamamoto.
The meeting will consist of a series of research talks selected from the abstracts and poster presentations, as well as keynote speakers. We are delighted that we will have two outstanding keynote speakers: Greg Barsh (Stanford and HudsonAlpha) and Emi Nishimura (Toyko Medical and Dental University). The meeting will take place at the ancient University of Edinburgh, nestled under the dramatic hills of Arthur’s seat and the Royal Holyrood Park.
We are delighted that the Company of Biologists is sponsoring:
Student and Postdoctoral Fellow Awards that will cover registration and contribute to accommodation costs. Please indicate on the abstract if you would like to be considered for these awards!
As pigment cell biology is important to the hair and skin, we have timed the meeting to be between the 7th World Hair Congress (http://www.hair2013.org) and the International Investigative Dermatology Meeting (http://www.iid2013.org). We hope this will provide an opportunity for colleagues from both conferences to attend and interact with the Developmental Biology Group.
We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh!
