Sainsbury Laboratory Symposium '16- Registration Open

last modified Nov 09, 2015 10:02 AM
Registration is now open for the inaugural Sainsbury Laboratory Symposium with a focus on induced plant development.
  • Early bird registration discount available until 30 November 2015
  • Registration deadline: Monday 4 January 2016
  • Poster abstract submission deadline: Friday 29 January 2016

SLCU is pleased to announce the inaugural event of its Sainsbury Laboratory Symposium series. The conference, held at SLCU, will focus on induced plant development and run from 4-6 April, 2016.

In contrast to animals, developmental processes in plants are strongly influenced by the environment. This meeting aims to bring together international researchers studying plant developmental processes that are modulated by the environment. The meeting will cover processes that are established de novo or are significantly changed in response to environmental signals. Sofie Goormachtig and Christian Fankhauser will be keynote speakers.

Further details and registration links are available from www.slcu.cam.ac.uk/sls16

New insights could help plants fortify walls against root pathogens

Sep 03, 2020

Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University (SLCU) researchers, as part of a multidisciplinary international team, have uncovered a mechanism controlling subtle changes to the architecture of cell walls in plant roots that bolsters their defence against Phytophthora palmivora without negatively affecting plant growth.

Cells in tight spaces – how the cytoskeleton responds to different cell geometries

Jul 09, 2020

Inside every living cell, there is a network of protein filaments providing an interior scaffold controlling the cell’s shape called the cytoskeleton. Research from the Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University (SLCU) suggests that this relationship might actually be two-way, with cell geometry itself having the capacity to influence the organisation of the cytoskeleton in living plant cells.
