Development and Morphogenesis: Symposium in honour of Maria Leptin
You are cordially invited to this symposium in honour of Professor Maria Leptin, current President of the European Research Council and past Director of EMBO (2010-2021). The programme reflects Maria’s career and research interests, including her training in mathematics and immunology and her postdoctoral research on the embryonic development of Drosophila. Maria began studying gastrulation while a group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Tübingen. As a Professor at the Institute of Genetics, University of Cologne and group leader at EMBL-Heidelberg, Maria’s most recent research has focused on the mechanics of shape determination during development. The programme also includes contributions from colleagues from Maria’s sabbaticals as a visiting Professor at the École Normale Supérieure, Paris, France and as visiting scientist at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, UK.
Registration is free, on a first come, first serve basis.
Location: EMBL Heidelberg, Germany
