Growth Factors, Gametes and Gonads

The development of functional gonads and the production of mature gametes requires precise control of cellular development, often over many months. Growth factor signals are critical regulators of every stage of gametogenesis and gonadogenesis, yet our understanding of how these signals exert their effects and how different signalling pathways converge within these tissues remains limited.

With an outstanding programme of expert speakers, this meeting offers both established and early career researchers the opportunity to hear the latest advancements in the field, and present their own new and unpublished data.

Topics covered will include: 

  • Exploring signalling networks in human follicles through transcriptomics
  • IGF signalling in sex determination
  • Nodal signalling in the fetal testis
  • Convergence of EGF and steroid signalling in the ovary
  • Dysregulated signalling in PCOS
