Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Dr Niamh Nowlan, Professor Celeste Nelson and Professor Philippa Francis-West.
Mechanical forces are critical for embryonic development – yet very little is known about their roles. The meeting will focus on the role of mechanobiology in multiple aspects of embryonic development. The meeting will bring together multidisciplinary research groups in this exciting 'young' area of developmental biology for the first time, enabling formation of a network and sparking new collaborations.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies can be found below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future volume of Philosophical Transactions B.
There will be a poster session at 17.00 on Monday 5 February 2018. If you would like to apply to present a poster please submit your proposed title, abstract (not more than 200 words and in third person), author list, name of the proposed presenter and authors' institutions to the Scientific Programmes team no later than Monday 4 December 2017. Please include the text ‘Poster abstract submission’ and the meeting title in the email subject line. Please note that places are limited and are selected at the scientific organisers' discretion.
