PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--La Fondation IPSEN and Nature Publishing Group share the same desire to help new scientific knowledge emerge and facilitate the exchange of the most promising ideas from a variety of different research areas. In 2007, the two organisations came together to create a new series of scientific events – the Emergence & Convergence mini-symposia - one-day meetings highlighting some of the most dynamic sectors in biological and medical research. The fifth meeting in Chicago on September 29 discussed a particularly important area in immunology research: the function of cell polarity. The meeting was organized by Christine Borowski (Nature Immunology, USA), Alison Schuldt (Nature Cell Biology, UK) and Yves Christen (La Fondation IPSEN, France).
