About our keynote speaker:
Eileen Furlong is Head of the Genome Biology Unit at the EMBL in Heidelberg. Eileen is a pioneer of applying genome-wide approaches for understanding molecular mechanisms in complex, multicellular organisms. Her research focuses on understanding the fundamental principles of transcriptional regulation and how regulatory mechanisms drive cell fate decisions during development. Her group is characterized by a high level of scientific rigour as well as multi-disciplinarity, successfully combining the systematic, unbiased nature of genomics with the power of Drosophila genetics, high-resolution imaging and approaches from developmental and evolutionary biology. Furlong is recipient of an ERC Advanced grant award, and has successfully organized many events aimed at fostering a vibrant functional genomics and systems biology community in Europe and abroad.
