”How do small groups of cells in microscopic buds turn themselves into the diverse flower and leaf shapes we see around us? To answer this question we need to know how genes and growth interact to create tissue shapes during development, and how this process varies to produce such a remarkable range of forms.”

Prof. Coen is a fellow of the Royal Society and one of a very small number of foreign associates of the US National Academy of Sciences, and has been awarded the prestigious Darwin and Linnean Gold medals. His talk is going to be one of the highlights of the year’s talks – we hope to see you all there.
