The Limb Development and Regeneration Conference will bring together investigators from around the world interested in all aspects of the developing limb. Since its inception in 1972, this conference series has provided a forum for discussing the most recent advances and ideas that are driving the field. As the field has expanded, these meetings have grown in importance. The scientific topics of the meeting will be limb initiation, patterning, chondrogenesis, myogenesis, vascularisation and innervation. Other major topics include limb regeneration and dysmorphologies, and evolution. The meeting will be small and informal with ample opportunity to meet colleagues, discuss work and form new collaborations.

This year (2004) the meeting will be held in Dundee, Scotland from the 15th to the 19th July. Located on the estuary of the River Tay, which is noted for its outstanding coastal scenery, Dundee is a short distance from the Scottish Highlands, and the City of St. Andrews (the birthplace of golf).

The meeting will be held at West Park Conference Centre, Perth Road, Dundee http://www.westparkcentre.com/index.asp, the website provides information about the facilities available, how to get to Dundee and the Conference Centre and other useful information about Dundee. Delegates should aim to arrive on Thursday 15th July to register for the conference and check in etc. The first scientific session will commence on Friday 16th July at 0900 hours and we anticipate a full programme of talks on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. If there is sufficient demand, there will be an optional trip on Monday which will take delegates back to Edinburgh via a scenic route arriving in Edinburgh mid-afternoon. There will be a reception at the Wellcome Trust Biocentre on Friday evening and a Ceilidh on Saturday.
