Lifecourse Biology: from development to disease and the clinicLifecourse Biology Poster Session

Held in Sheffield, at the Edge Conference Facility from 13th to 15th September 2017

Lifecourse Biology was officially launched in September, at a major international meeting, hosted in the Edge conference venue. Researchers from around the world attended to hear how research into developmental processes is important in understanding disease and treatments throughout life. Research of the very highest quality was combined with “mesmerising live-imaging” to show the benefits of these approaches. Sheffield’s world-leading position in non-mammalian models of development and disease was commented on by several international speakers. There was lively debate between scientists, clinicians and senior figures from big pharma. Bateson Director, Steve Renshaw commented “This was a unique opportunity to bring together some of the biggest names in the world working on animal development and modelling of disease. It was great to see the idea of Lifecourse Biology developed over the three days of the meeting, culminating in a session on translating developmental biology.”
