If you have a question about this talk, please contact Komal Nayak.

This one-day symposium aims to bring together Cambridge based researchers and scientists with an interest in the intestinal epithelium. In addition to presenting current work, share experiences and highlight future perspectives, there will be plenty of opportunities to network and connect. We hope that this meeting will become a regular annual event and provide a platform to generate ideas and build new collaborations.

Confirmed speakers include:
  • Douglas Winton (CRUK Cambridge Institute)
  • Ludovic Vallier (Cambridge Stem Cell Institute)
  • Bon-Kyoung Koo (Cambridge Stem Cell Institute)
  • Simon Buczacki (CRUK Cambridge Institute)
  • Patrick Varga-Weisz (Babraham Institute)
  • Marc Veldhoen (Babraham Institute)
  • Matthias Zilbauer (Department of Paediatrics,CU)
Main topics covered:
  • Intestinal stem cells and cancer development
  • Intestinal epithelial organoid culture models
  • Genome editing of intestinal epithelial organoids
  • Epigenetic regulation of intestinal epithelial cell function
  • Host gut epithelium-microbe interactions
