Quantissue meeting 2013: “Computational approaches to networks, cells and tissues”

Barcelona, Spain

Organizers: James Sharpe (CRG) and Hernán López-Schier (Helmholtz Zentrum München)

The aim of this meeting is to bring together leading scientists working on data-driven computational modelling, with a common interest in unraveling the fundamental mechanisms that govern cell and tissue biology. Because this field of research is still budding, it is essential to exchange ideas and train the next generation of researchers to join the field. A key challenge is to cope with multiscale systems. In other words, it is increasingly recognized that many levels of organization must be treated as equally important, in particular: the molecular, cellular and tissue levels. We have thus selected speakers working at each of these different levels. These pioneers, from around the world, are each combining quantitative data and computer modeling, and in some cases, pursuing projects which are already combining the different levels into unified models.

QuanTissue: QuanTissue represents a multi-disciplinary project whose main objective is to bring together experts from complementary disciplines with a firm interest in a quantitative understanding of the basic mechanisms that govern morphogenetic processes at subcellular to tissue levels. It has become evident that imaginative and refined experimental strategies based on genetics, imaging, quantitative and biophysical approaches, combined with the exploration of the fullest potential of mathematical modeling are necessary to understand cellular and developmental biology. QuanTissue is an interactive and collaborative network to bridge the gap between traditionaldevelopmental cell biology, biophysics and systems biology.
European Science Foundation: The European Science Foundation (ESF) provides a platform for its Member Organisations to advance science and explore new directions for research at the European level. Established in 1974 as an independent non-governmental organisation, the ESF currently serves 78 Member Organisations across 30 countries.
