Cinematic Highlights at the BSDB Meeting 2011

Posted by on July 5th, 2011

As promised, in this final part of my meeting report on the BSCB-BSDB Spring Conference 2011 I will highlight a couple of talks which came with visual effects – studies involving live imaging. I prefer to watch these movies in seminars rather than downloading them with a paper because getting live explanations can make things[…]

Meeting the worm community

Posted by on July 1st, 2011

Last week I attended the 18th international C. elegans meeting at UCLA, organised by the Genetics Society of America. Having done most of my scientific training with mammalian cell culture, I had never been to an organism-specific meeting – let alone one about worms – and I was curious to find out what it would[…]

Mathematical and Computational Modelling at the BSDB Meeting 2011

Posted by on June 20th, 2011

Here is part 3 of my report on the 2011 BSCB-BSDB Spring Conference this April in Canterbury. In the first part, I covered Mark Krasnow’s amazing opening lecture on lung development, and in part two I introduced this year’s awardees of the BSCB and BSDB honorary medals. Here I’ll highlight some of the talks in[…]

Epithelial-to-Mesenchymal Transition meeting in Singapore (Oct.10-Oct.13)

Posted by on June 16th, 2011

The fifth international EMT (epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition) meeting will be held this year from Oct 10 to Oct 13 in the beautiful city state of Singapore.  The meeting is co-organized by Jean Paul Thiery and Erik Thompson. It will cover recent development in the EMT field, ranging from basic molecular and developmental mechanisms to translational research[…]

ISSCR meeting in Toronto – keeping up via Twitter

Posted by on June 15th, 2011

I’m currently in Toronto for the annual meeting of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR), and you can expect to find updates about the meeting at various places. Of course we’ll cover it here on the Node itself, but we’re also using Twitter to share and follow news from the meeting. The ISSCR[…]

Awards presented at this year’s BSCB-BSDB Spring meeting in Canterbury

Each year, three medals to honour extraordinary research achievements in cell and developmental biology are awarded at the joint conference of the British Societies for Cell Biology (BSCB) and Developmental Biology (BSDB). Here on the Node, Eva has recently posted an interview with Carlos Carmona-Fontaine, to whom this year’s Beddington medal was awarded, for his[…]

A deep breath to kick off the BSCB-BSDB Spring Meeting 2011

Posted by on May 20th, 2011

BSCB-BSDB Spring meeting April 27 – 30, 2011 Canterbury University Since I very much enjoyed last year’s joint conference of the British Societies for Developmental Biology (BSDB) and Cell Biology (BSCB) in Warwick, I was optimistic about attending the 2011 meeting in Canterbury. The organisers unknowingly scheduled it for the days around the royal wedding[…]

6th International Chick Conference

Posted by on May 6th, 2011

Can I just bring to eveyone’s attention that the 6th International Chick Conference is now to be held at The Roslin Insititute, UK. Sept 17-20, 2011. This forum often attracts a strong developmental biology contingent and we anticipate the 2011 conference will include many relevant themes (e.g Morphogenesis; Organogenesis; Patterning, Cell Fates and Organizers; Genetic[…]
