Conference Goals

April 28 - 30, 2004




The International Federation of Pigment Cell Societies Development Group is hosting a small meeting designed to coalesce the remarkable recent progress in the field of pigment cell development with research aimed at gaining new insights into differentiation, gene expression and embryology. This conference will explore these themes by gathering experts in a broad range of fields spanning basic transcriptional mechanisms through the clinical impact of pigment cell research. The scientific program will include talks from group members including some leading experts in this field, and from some external invited speakers.

Our goal is to bring together a diverse group of dynamic speakers and participants who can together explore the current findings in pigment cell development.

This is an informal meeting. No registration fee is required. All participants are required to make their own arrangements for travel and hotels. We have reserved rooms at a local hotel with discounted government rates. You need to make your reservations ASAP. There will be a shuttle service between these hotels and the conference at the Cloisters. Continental breakfast, coffee breaks and lunches will be provided. There will be receptions at the Cloisters on the evenings of April 28 and April 29, 2004.
