Unfolding collaboration

Posted by on July 18th, 2017

We came across this video from EuroStemCell describing a project that aimed to increase public awareness of stem cell biology, as well as encourage scientists to get involved in public engagement and interact with other professionals along the way. In their introduction to the video, EuroStemCell give us the background:   “Creative public engagement initiatives are[…]

Meet Our Scientists VIDEO: Marco Milán: “To study how cells communicate with each other, perhaps the best model organism is the fruit fly”

Posted by on February 15th, 2017

The “Meet Our Scientists” video entitled “Our relative the fly” presents the research performed by Marco Millán on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the regulation of tissue growth during normal development, tissue homeostasis, and tumorigenesis.     Marco Milán, ICREA research professor, leads the Development and Growth Control Laboratory at IRB Barcelona. In the[…]

Uncovering Non-canonical Roles of E-cadherin Beyond Cell Adhesion

Posted by on February 14th, 2017

Broad perspective Successful division was an essential criterion for establishing the cell as the basic unit of life on earth. Later, cell-cell adhesion made possible the evolution of multicellular life forms. These two fundamental cellular processes co-function throughout the life of an organism, during development, wound healing and tissue regeneration. In epithelial tissues this results[…]

Life’s symphony: a fusion of art and science to display the beauty of development

Posted by on July 26th, 2016

Mark Hintze and Diana Gradinaru introduce their collaborative animation about the wonders of developmental biology.   How are you built?  How do you become the shape and form that you are? How are your arms the same length?  These questions and many others lead me to study for a PhD in developmental biology. Yet, during my PhD I[…]

John Doctor Education Prize—A Best Education Video Competition

Posted by on May 10th, 2016

The Society for Developmental Biology (SDB) Professional Development and Education Committee (PDEC) created the John Doctor Education Prize to highlight great developmental biology education research.  In previous years, the committee awarded a prize for the best education poster at the SDB annual meeting.  This year, the PDEC has reinvented the award as a best education[…]

Light sheet microscopy 101: Get started with a short video protocol

Posted by on April 13th, 2016

Here you can find out more about our video protocol on using light sheet microscopy to image zebrafish eye development.   Light sheet fluorescence microscopy has quickly become a popular technique in developmental biology. This method is very gentle to the samples, with fast acquisition speed and allows capturing the samples from any angle or from[…]
