The Society for Developmental Biology 82nd Annual Meeting will begin with the Presidential Symposium on Thursday, July 20 at 5:00 pm and end with the Closing Reception on Sunday, July 23 beginning at 6:00 pm. The Satellite Symposium will be held Thursday, July 20 from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm prior to the opening of the annual meeting.

Symposium Overview

The symposium aims to connect developmental biologists who are interested in gene regulation by transcriptional enhancers and its role in development, evolution, and congenital disorders. It will be a platform where junior scientists, including graduate students and postdocs, can network and interact with rising leaders in the field. It will foster new collaborations and exciting idea exchanges between SDB meeting attendees.

The program will focus on transcriptional enhancers, abundant non-coding DNA elements regulating gene expression during development and in response to intrinsic and external signals. It will feature four sessions:

  1. Mechanism of enhancer function in development
  2. Enhancer in evolution
  3. Enhancer grammar and regulatory code
  4. Enhancers in human biology and disease

Each session will include talks from invited speakers and selected talks chosen from abstracts of early career researchers and trainees, as well as trainee lightning talks.
