The European Molecular Biology Laboratory, one of the world's top research institutions, is dedicated to basic research in the molecular life sciences. EMBL is funded by public research monies from 20 member states - Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom and an associate member state, Australia.
Advanced Training is one of the core missions of the EMBL since its creation in 1974. Aiming at the promotion of excellence in modern life sciences and providing valuable services to its Member States and the international scientific community, EMBL has build a tradition and extensive expertise in organising and hosting advanced conferences, courses and workshops.

Stem Cells, Tissue Homeostasis and Cancer Conference:

The conference series aims to incorporate basic, translational and clinical aspects of stem cell research into a single framework. The mechanisms that generate and maintain mammalian embryonic and tissue-specific stem cell populations will be discussed, as will the application of this knowledge to regenerative medicine and cancer biology. In particular, the role of induced pluripotentcy and cancer stem cells will be highlighted. Non-mammalian model systems will be included as they provide strong forward genetics, and also opportunities for in vivo pharmacological screening. The goal is to give participants an overview of the model systems and scientific and logistic framework involved in gaining and exploiting basic knowledge of stem cell biology.


Each session will start with a keynote address, and contain ca. 3 additional featured speakers. In addition, 1-2 short talks will be included in each session, based on selected abstracts. In addition, a full afternoon will be dedicated to poster presentations.

The overall schedule will be:

* Day 1: Welcome, Evening session
* Day 2: Morning session, Posters, Evening session
* Day 3: 3 sessions, followed by dinner with entertainment
* Day 4: morning session

The program will be organised into the following sessions:

* 1. Embryonic Stem Cells and Reprogramming
* 2. Hematopoiesis
* 3. Tissue Stem Cells I. Epithelial stem cells
* 4. Tissue Stem Cells II. Other tissues
* 5. Non-mammalian model systems
* 6. Cancer Stem Cells
* 7. Regeneration
