International Workshop

"At the roots of bilaterian complexity:
insights from early emerging metazoans"

Evangelische Akademie Tutzing, Germany, 16-19 September 2019

The workshop will bring together researchers from around the world using early emerging metazoans to gain insight into cellular and genomic events underpinning the origin and evolution of animal diversity and complexity. The goal of the workshop is to learn about cutting-edge research from international experts in the field and to provide a forum for future networks and collaborations. All investigators working on the evolution of multicellular complexity are invited; heads of laboratories are expected to inform their coworkers.

The workshop will be quite intimate – with a maximum number of 120 participants. Contributions to the meeting may be in the form of talks or posters, mainly on new or unpublished findings. The emphasis is very much upon discussion and there is plenty of time within the programme to make this possible.

Workshop topics include:

We are very pleased with having David J Anderson as our “inspirational” evening speaker. David J. Anderson is Seymour Benzer Professor of Biology at the California Institute of Technology.
