2nd Annual CDB Symposium: Developmental Remodeling (March 29 - 31, 2004; Kobe, Japan)

The RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology (CDB) was established in April 2000 in Kobe, Japan to promote research into the fundamental mechanisms of animal development and regeneration. To keep up with advances and identify future directions in these rapidly evolving fields, the CDB inaugurated a program of annual symposia covering diverse aspects of developmental biology and regeneration and aimed at promoting the free and timely exchange of research achievements. The first annual CDB Symposium, "The Origin and Formation of Multicellular Systems," was convened in March 2003. We are pleased to announce that the second symposium in the series will focus on the theme of "Developmental Remodeling," and will be held from March 29 to 31, 2004 in the CDB auditorium.

This symposium will cover a broad range of subjects relating to the plasticity of biological systems, and will feature talks by a number of internationally distinguished invitees and speakers selected from amongst the symposium attendees. The initial sessions will be devoted to discussion of the molecular mechanisms of gene regulation at the level of chromatin organization, and experimental approaches to the recapitulation of pluripotency in somatic nuclei. These will be followed by sessions on the plasticity of cells and tissues in morphogenetic processes in development and regeneration following injury. The final session will address organismal remodeling during ontogeny (i.e., metamorphosis) and evolution. It is hoped that the broad scope of the presentations and disciplines covered will stimulate fruitful discussion and yield fresh new insights into the stability and plasticity of biological systems.

Attendance to the CDB Symposium will be limited to approximately 120 general attendees, and all those interested in participating are asked to submit an application for review by the organizing committee. Applicants for attendance are encouraged to submit poster abstracts with their appli
