Determining the origin of tissue stem/progenitor cells is key to our understanding of developmental biology. This meeting will focus on how and when self-renewing tissue stem cells arise during embryonic development. We will discuss common features between different stem cell lineages, and examine how modelling can inform in vivo studies. Join us in Edinburgh to learn more, exchange ideas and accelerate discoveries with leading scientists in this field.
