March 26, 2010 – The RIKEN CDB hosted its eighth annual symposium, “Frontiers in Organogenesis” on March 23 – 25, bringing together nearly 200 participants from 16 countries to discuss recent advances in fields relating to the formation of functional, complex biological structures.

The three-day meeting featured a wide range of oral presentations organized into sessions focused on themes relating to the patterning, imaging, evolution, and dynamics of organogenic phenomena. In addition to the 25 talks, each day included a poster session in which more than 90 poster presenters discussed their work.



The CDB symposium series, launched in 2003, was established as a forum for addressing diverse aspects of developmental biology and the mechanisms of regeneration and aims to promote the free, timely and borderless exchange of research achievements. This year’s event was co-organized by the CDB’s Yoshiki Sasai, Shigeru Kuratani, and Masatoshi Takeichi, along with Cliff Tabin of Harvard Medical School (USA). Additional financial support was provided by The Company of Biologists and Wiley-Blackwell, John Wiley and Sons, Inc.
