  • 5th International Conference on Epithelial Mesenchymal Transition, Monday, October 10, 2011 - Thursday, October 13, 2011
    Location: Singapore
    Description: The objectives of the meeting are to 1) Bring together investigators in the separate disciplines of cancer, pathology and development to discuss their observations on EMT and explore whether there is a consensus on important components of the process. 2) Provide a forum where students and junior investigators can interact with senior investigators and display their own work and ideas in the field. 3) Expand a viable co-operative cross disciplinary forum of EMT-related researchers internationally, particularly with outreach to Asia. This will continue to provide a worldwide network for exchange of expertise, reagents and techniques across disciplines. 4) Publish a timely meeting update on cellular, molecular and genetic aspects of EMT in an appropriate cross-disciplinary international journal.
