Welcome to the Pigment Cell Developmental Biology Workshop 2013! The 2013 Pigment Cell Developmental Biology Workshop is an opportunity for international researchers to meet and discuss the latest and best research on the development of the pigment cell in all species. The meeting will consist of a series of research talks selected from the abstracts and poster presentations, as well as keynote speakers. We are delighted that we will have two outstanding keynote speakers: Greg Barsh (Stanford and HudsonAlpha) and Emi Nishimura (Toyko Medical and Dental University). The meeting will take place at the ancient University of Edinburgh, nestled under the dramatic hills of Arthur’s seat and the Royal Holyrood Park.
As pigment cell biology is important to the hair and skin, the meeting has been timed to be between the 7th World Hair Congress (4-6 May 2013, Edinburgh, UK) and the International Investigative Dermatology Meeting (8-11 May 2013, Edinburgh, UK). This will certainly provide an opportunity for participants at both conferences to attend and interact with the Developmental Biology Group.
The Pigment Cell Developmental Biology Workshop 2013 is sponsored by the European Society for Pigment Cell Research (ESPCR), Pigment Cell & Melanoma Research (PCMR) and the Medical Research Council, Human Genetics Unit (MRC-HGU).
Looking forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh!
