SDB meeting in Albuquerque

Posted by on August 5th, 2010

Today is the first day of the SDB meeting in Albuquerque. The program looks amazing, and I’m looking forward to many of the talks. The meeting is held jointly with the Japanese Society for Developmental Biologists, so many of the attendees came all the way from Japan. Development and the Node are here in Albuquerque[…]

The Maggot Meeting-2010

Posted by on July 26th, 2010

Greetings! It’s been an overcast, windy and gloomy Monsoon here in Bangalore, but the past few weeks at NCBS have been bright and exciting! The “Maggot Meeting – 2010”: Neural Circuits and Behaviour is currently on till the 27th of July and I look forward to the seminars and interactive discussions with eminent scientists. Early[…]

Development Editors Meeting

Posted by on July 19th, 2010

On July 9, the editors of Development met in Strasbourg (or joined over the phone) for a meeting. Because Development‘s editors are spread out all over the world, these meetings are a rare opportunity to get everyone together to discuss the journal. Editors all get a chance to share ideas they have for the journal,[…]

BSDB-BSCB Meeting Report Part III

Posted by on July 10th, 2010

Here is the final part of my meeting report on the BSDB-BSCB Spring Conference this April in Warwick. In the first part, I covered some of the talks on transcriptional regulation, and in part two I gave a brief overview on recent attempts to decipher large-scale transcription factor networks. In this final part I will[…]

The Node Launch Party

Posted by on July 6th, 2010

Yes, we’ve been live for a few weeks, but you’re not truly and fully launched as a website these days without a proper launch party, so we had ours last night in Cambridge (UK). The Gurdon Institute was kind enough to open their doors to us, and we invited all of their labs as well[…]

ISSCR meeting

Posted by on July 1st, 2010

Almost four thousand people attended the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) meeting in San Francisco in June. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, about a quarter of the attendees were from California, but other participants traveled from Australia, Europe, and Asia to attend the meeting. There were far too many talks to summarize[…]

Lindau Nobel Laureates Meeting

Posted by on June 29th, 2010

Have you ever met a Nobel Laureate? 650 lucky young researchers are currently spending the week with 59 previous Nobel Prize winners from the fields of physiology or medicine, physics and chemistry. Each year, a group of Nobel Laureates meet in Lindau, a German town (and island) at Lake Constance, close to the Swiss and[…]

The Young Embryologist Meeting, 2010. London.

Posted by on June 23rd, 2010

May 10th 2010 marked the second anniversary of a very young but promising scientific meeting, the Young Embryologist Meeting (YEM). This meeting was organised by a group of PhD students and young post-docs from London interested in developmental biology but open to everyone. Researchers at this level are just beginning to make decisions on what[…]

BSDB-BSCB Meeting Report Part II

Posted by on June 21st, 2010

As announced in my last post, here is part two of the BSDB-BSCB Spring Meeting Report. It deals with two presentations on networks of transcription factors (TFs). During development, such dynamic networks of TFs and signaling molecules establish and maintain the spatio-temporal patterns of gene expression characteristic for the developing tissue. Using high throughput approaches[…]

Meeting report from the 2nd joint meeting of the SFBD AND JSDB 2010 – “From Cells to Organs”

Posted by on June 13th, 2010

(This was essentially written by Dr. Chris Gordon – see bottom for details, though “Heather” posted it here.) Approximately 320 participants attended the second joint meeting of both the Japanese and French societies for developmental biology at the Institut Pasteur on May 26th to 28th, 2010. Of these, sixty Japanese developmental biologists made the voyage[…]
