RUNX transcription factors in development & disease

The purpose of this EMBO Workshop is to bring together scientists of different disciplines to discuss new findings on RUNX transcription factors in development and disease. The underlining aim is to expose researchers to different systems (e.g. hematopoiesis, osteogenesis, neurogenesis), different model systems (invertebrate and vertebrate), and different cellular processes (stem cell maintenance, cell cycle control, and differentiation) to stimulate new ideas and synergistic interactions.

THE EMBO WORKSHOP WILL HAVE FOUR MAJOR THEMES:
1. Genetic dissection of networks governing development
2. Molecular mechanisms regulating tissue-specific stem cells
3. Epigenetic controls in cell fate decisions
4. RUNX proteins in cancer and leukaemia.
