EMBO Workshop on Wnt signalling:
Stem cells | Development | Disease

October 6-9, 2014
Cable Beach Club Resort, Broome, Western Australia

Wnt ligands are key regulators of development, stem cell biology and regeneration. The dynamic control of Wnt signaling regulates basic cellular processes including cell proliferation, differentiation, migration and apoptosis. Recent advances in our understanding of signaling mechanisms have provided the tools and conceptual framework for the analysis of Wnt deregulation in disease, leading to the emergence of early-stage therapies for the treatment of disease.

Broome: Where the sky meets the land, the desert meets the sea, where white sands, red rocks and cobalt blue waters come together; on a peninsula not more than 15km long, here rests the town of Broome.
