Cellular mechanisms of the consequences of environmental changes on embryonic development 

A one-day symposium organized at the occasion of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union, under the patronage of the Ministry of Education, Research, and Innovation.

Paris, May 10, 2022

It is widely known that the environment influences the development and physiology of living organisms. Many environmental phenomena, such as air and soil pollution, chemical toxins, global warming, or ocean acidification, have been linked to abnormalities in embryonic development in multiple species, including humans. These abnormalities can be the cause or a cofactor of many of the most common diseases. More generally, many "normal" environmental phenomena, such as day-night cycles, light, and seasons also influence development. If the description of these events is often well established, the knowledge of their cellular and molecular mechanisms is more fragmentary. 
The symposium will include one day of conferences where prestigious speakers from several European countries will be invited to share their experience.
The objectives are to review the most advanced research in the understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms of the role of environmental phenomena on development, and to promote the exchange of ideas within the EU.

Attendance will be free.

Information on the program and the venue will follow soon.
