Scope of the conference
Regeneration in mammals is limited to a small spectrum of organs. Somatic stem cells have now been isolated from a wide variety of adult tissues but it is not yet understood how to stimulate such precursors to replace missing tissue. All metazoan phyla contain organisms that undergo perfect adult regeneration including Hydra, planaria and vertebrates such as the salamanders. The identification of the molecular events induced by wounding in regenerating animals will help to identify the factors and conditions that allow developmental fields to be established de novo in terminally differentiated tissues. The idea of this conference is to promote interaction between scientists working on the the molecular basis of regeneration in classical model systems, with scientists studying tissue regeneration, wound healing, axonal regeneration, and the biology of stem cells. Time will be available for oral presentations to be selected from the participants' abstracts. Poster sessions will be included to which all participants may contribute.
The meeting will have sessions of talks on: ( Stem cells in regenerating organisms ( Stem cells in repairing tissues ( Wound healing and repair ( Functional genomics and regeneration ( From repair to regeneration (Signalling pathways and regeneration (Cellular plasticity.

The conference is open to researchers world-wide, whether from industry or academia. Participation will be limited to 100. The emphasis will be on discussion about new developments. The conference fee covers registration, full board and lodging. Grants will be available, in particular for nationals under 35 from EU or Associated States.

Deadline for applications: 6 May 2002
