14th International Conference on Limb Development and Regeneration

Research into limb development encompasses the full variety of themes and organisms which comprise developmental Biology, including evolution, genomics, patterning,, regeneration, mathematical biology and human genetic disorders. The ‘Limb Meeting’ has been a biennial meeting for over 50 years and attracts speakers from around the world with a shared interest in this wide range of subjects. The meeting in Edinburgh July 2017 aims to bring together these researchers and, with the addition of a clinical workshop, also introduce leading limb surgeons, geneticists and clinicians.
