Summary of Meeting:
Key insights into signaling pathways have been gained from study of control of spatial and temporal patterning and morphogenesis in both invertebrate and vertebrate models, and from study of dysregulation of these pathways in disease. Given that nearly one-quarter of the genome is predicted to encode signaling proteins and that many pathways use common intermediates, it is likely that many of the proteins will be involved in regulation and integration of these signals. Recent findings suggest that development is guided by multiple levels of cooperation between different signaling pathways, which govern competence of cells to respond to a second signal, with both direct and indirect cross-talk providing additional levels of control. This meeting will focus on the latest advances in understanding developmental pathways involving Notch, Hedgehog, Wnt, members of the TGF-beta superfamily, FGF and EGF, with emphasis on new levels of signal integration between these pathways.

Keystone Symposia is offering scholarships of up to 1,200 USD to Students and Postdoctoral fellows. These scholarships are to be used to help defray the expenses associated with conference attendance, including airfare (restrictions may apply based on funding source), ground transportation, lodging costs, and a portion of meeting registration. Receipts will be required to receive reimbursement.

Abstracts submitted for poster presentation will be used as the basis for awarding the scholarships. Scholarship recipients will be selected based on the quality of science of the abstract and the relevance of the abstract to the conference topic. Only one application per abstract is accepted. Only one award per lab will be allocated.


To be eligible for a scholarship, you must be:

A graduate student or postdoctoral fellow currently enrolled in an academic institute at the start of the meeting for which you are applying. Note: a graduate student is defined as a student who is studying for a higher degree at an academic institution. A postdoctoral fellow is defined as an individual with a Ph.D., M.D., or DVM degree who is engaged in a temporary period of mentored research and/or scholarly training for the purpose of acquiring the professional skills needed to pursue their desired career path, and is within 6 years of these degrees.

Review Criteria

Criteria for Abstract Review:

  1. Relevance to the meeting topic
  2. Significance of the scientific question and results
  3. Style
    • Organization (e.g. the abstract has a clear beginning, middle and end)
    • Grammar and spelling
  4. Clarity of scientific presentations
    • Clear question or hypothesis
    • Sufficient background
    • The experimental approach and rationale for the approach are clear
    • The results are clearly presented
    • The interpretation and conclusions are reasonable and logical

Application Process

If you are eligible and wish to be considered for a scholarship, you should complete all of the following by the scholarship deadline for the meeting you wish to attend. It is recommended you begin these steps in advance of the deadline date to ensure completion.
