OpenLecture : Edit   Refresh

OpenLecture - Round Table

  • "Manipulating the origin of human life. What are we up to?"

    Date: April 3 2019, 10-12 hrs

    Place: Former Congress building in Santiago, Catedral 1158, Santiago (Metro Plaza de Armas)

    Aim: Discuss the scientific and technological advances that allow the manipulation of embryonic development in humans, and the people's expectations, fears, and emerging ethical considerations.

    Format: Conferences of Dr. Claudio Stern (University College London, UK) and Alfonso Martínez-Arias (Cambridge University, UK) followed by a round table and questions from the public, conducted by the journalist Andrea Obaid. Cecilia Hidalgo (President of Chilean Science Academy), Manuel Santos (President of Chilean Bioethics Society) and Rafael Sagredo (historian) will join the round table.

Workshop EMBO

  • "Bridging cell and tissue mechanics to fate specification in development"

    Date: April 2-5 2019

    Place: Enrique d’Etigny Auditorium, Facultad de Ciencias Físicas y Matemáticas, Universidad de Chile, Beauchef 851, Santiago - Chile

    Aim: To bring together a cross-disciplinary collection of researchers from cell and developmental biology, tissue biophysics and theoretical physics, with the overarching goal of understanding how cells build tissues across scales during development. Also, to establish mechanistic links between cell/tissue mechanics and cell fate specification during development, providing a forum for scientific interactions, the cross-fertilization of ideas, the fostering of new collaborations and the development of strategies to address emerging technical needs and close existing gaps in knowledge.

    Format: Conferences and Poster presentations.

    Organisers: Miguel Concha (BNI - U. Chile), Carl-Philipp Heisenberg (Institute of Science and Technology Austria), Anna-Katerina Hadjantonakis (Sloan Kettering Institute, New York, US), Rodrigo Soto (U. Chile)
