March 29, 2012 –The RIKEN CDB held its tenth annual symposium, “Quantitative Developmental Biology” on March 26–28. Around 160 participants from 14 countries gathered to interact and review experimental, computational, and theoretical approaches to the study of principles of development. In addition to the 31 talks over the course of the three-day program, days 1 and 2 included poster sessions in which over 70 poster presenters discussed their work.


This year’s event was co-organized by the CDB’s Shigeo Hayashi and Tatsuo Shibata , as well as Suzanne Eaton of the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (Germany), Shigeru Kondo of Osaka University, and Shuichi Onami of the RIKEN Quantitative Biology Center. Additional support for the meeting was provided by 11 organizations.

The CDB symposium series, launched in 2003, was established as a forum for addressing diverse aspects of developmental and regenerative biology, and aims to promote the free, timely and borderless exchange of research achievements.
