How far is India from Europe?

Posted by on February 12th, 2016

The launch of a new partnership between EMBO and India made me think about what international connections mean to European research. One of the pleasures of being a research scientist is the opportunity to travel and explore different parts of the world. I’ve visited many countries and I have friends living and working all over,[…]

PhD Studentship at MRC-NIMR, UK in Vertebrate Developmental Biology

Posted by on March 2nd, 2014

DEVELOPMENTAL PATTERNING OF THE VERTEBRATE NERVOUS SYSTEM NIMR project supervisor: James Briscoe (Developmental Biology) The complex tissues and organs of every multicellular organism develop in a precise and reproducible manner from initially indistinguishable cells. A fundamental question is how such equipotent cells acquire the appropriate identity for their location. One example of this is the[…]
