EMBO Workshop. Frontiers in Sensory Development, Barcelona, Spain

Posted by on February 2nd, 2011

Barcelona is the setting for the EMBO Workshop, Frontiers in Sensory Development from 3rd-6th May, 2011. The meeting will focus on different aspects of sensory development, function and evolution in both vertebrate and invertebrate systems. We hope this workshop will allow a better understanding of common themes in sensory function and will encourage colleagues working[…]

The (re)birth of the DSDB

Posted by on February 1st, 2011

As the world of research into developmental biology becomes larger, and the arrival of online communities such as The Node allows us to bring that world a little closer to hand, the importance of using scientific communities to share expertise and experience only grows.   Therefore, here in the Netherlands we are pleased to announce that[…]

How to stay in contact with the French Community of Developmental Biologists?

Posted by on February 1st, 2011

I remember when I was a post doc abroad. Science was great, life in a foreign country was very nice, but there was one huge drawback for a French in exile: how to stay in contact with research in France (or any country…), especially when you are a newcomer in the developmental biology field? One[…]

Citing Data

Posted by on January 17th, 2011

I just got back from attending two meetings about academia and the internet – one in person and the second, in true internet style, virtually. Both meetings at one point or another discussed the growing trend toward archiving and citing data itself (on top of citing the papers written based on analysis of the data).[…]

Royal Society Stem Cell Meeting talks online

Posted by on January 11th, 2011

The Royal Society has uploaded audio files of almost all the talks of their Discussion Meeting last October: “2010: What Next for Stem Cell Biology?”. Unfortunately there are no slides to look at (as far as I can tell) so some of the more technical talks may be hard to follow, but if you’re already[…]

Funding Opportunity for BSDB members travelling to ES cell course

Posted by on January 5th, 2011

Message from the BSDB, reposted with permission. Keep in mind that the funding opportunities are for BSDB members only, and the final deadline is very, very soon. The poster for the course was posted on the Node earlier. We have the unique opportunity to provide UK BSDB members with funded opportunities to attend an intensive[…]

Career development at the ASCB

Posted by on December 14th, 2010

It’s been a busy time for me at ASCB, held this year in Philadelphia. As a long standing member of the Women in Cell Biology (WICB) committee, I have been part of a community of men and women interested in issues of career development for junior scientists in the life sciences. On Saturday, we held[…]

V International Meeting of the LASDB

Posted by on November 20th, 2010

Being at the end of the planet Earth and organizing an international meeting is not easy. Even harder is to prepare and hold a course intended for an international audience. But the organizing committee of the Fifth International Meeting of the Latin American Society for Developmental Biology, together with the Society for Developmental Biology, managed[…]
