We are celebrating the 100th anniversary of Sir D’Arcy Thompson’s influential opus magnum “On Growth and Form” and the 10th General Meeting of the Theory of Living Matter Group with talks by two amazing speakers: In “Unravelling the Principles of Morphogenesis — Theory & Experiments”, Prof L Mahadevan FRS (Harvard University) and Prof Michael Akam FRS (University of Cambridge) will tell us how theory and experiments are broadening our understanding of the developmental processes that give rise to forms and shapes in living systems.

Talks:

L Mahadevan: “Morphogenesis: geometry, physics and biology”

M Akam: “Arthropod Segmentation: A case study in Evolutionary Developmental Biology”

No registration needed. A drinks reception will follow the talks.
