XXIV Annual Meeting of the Cell, Tissue and Organ Culture Study Group (C.T.O.C.) affiliated with the International Union Against Cancer (U.I.C.C.), Heidelberg, 10 – 11 October 1986 (conference held in conjunction with the 34th Meeting of the European Tissue Culture Society, ETCS)

This was the first international conference at which an application of the novel concept of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) to embryo implantation (endometrial receptivity and trophoblast invasion) was presented and discussed.
