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
