What past participants say about the symposium

Organoid biology is all about interaction across multiple disciplines and methods. The
EMBO | EMBL Symposium has been a wonderful venue for hosting such cross-talks
.” – Francesco Cambuli, Columbia University, USA

This conference was a great oppotunity to bring together experts on the organoid field, creating an important network for future collaborations.” – Veronica Foletto, University of Trento, Italy

“This symposium was one of the best conferences I attended so far. Beside the location and networking possibilities I would like to emphasize the great choice of speakers and posters. The presented data and new applications were astonishing and represented the development of organoid field very nicely. Thank you very much for the organization of such a great symposium.” – Thomas Däullary, Julius-Maximilians-Universität of Würzburg, Germany

EMBO | EMBL Symposia promote scientific communication and collaboration in the European research area. They provide scientists with a platform to discuss and exchange ideas on forward-looking topics and new developments in the life sciences.

Topics emphasise upcoming developments and the interdisciplinary nature of related fields. Jointly funded and organised by EMBO and EMBL – and complementary to their respective courses, workshops, and conference programmes – the symposia promote scientific communication and collaboration.

All symposia are held in the EMBL Advanced Training Centre (ATC) in Heidelberg, Germany, or virtually.
