GUEST SEMINARS AT THE SARS CENTRE
Aissam Ikmi, Group Leader at EMBL Heidelberg, Germany
Aissam Ikmi from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory will present his talk: "Design principles of early animals: a cnidarian view."
Development is a highly dynamic process in which organisms often experience changes in both form and behavior. By using an interdisciplinary approach to study the early life history of the cnidarian Nematostella vectensis – a morphologically simple metazoan species with a complex tissue organization, I will discuss the intimate relationship between behavior and body development and how these organismal properties are coordinated across multiple scales.
This seminar will be in-person only.
