Posted by on March 5th, 2019

Alexander Blackwell and James Gahan   At the beginning of November 2018, thirty researchers congregated at Wiston House to attend a workshop titled ‘Evo-chromo: towards an integrative approach of chromatin dynamics across eukaryotes’. The workshop was organised by Frederic Berger (Gregor Mendel Institute) and Ines Anna Drinnenberg (Institut Curie), and was the 27th workshop hosted[…]

Posted by on December 12th, 2017

  Development is delighted to announce the third in our highly successful series of events focussing on human developmental biology. Since the initiation of this series, in 2014, we have witnessed huge progress in this field, with more and more researchers turning to stem cell and organoid systems to investigate development and organogenesis in vitro, as[…]

Context is everything, for a cell and for a scientist!

Posted by on March 24th, 2017

The idea sounded intriguing at first: 30 scientists in an isolated and stunning old house discussing intercellular interactions in the context of tissues and organs. It became even more intriguing when we were asked to prepare slides about ourselves, not only about our research but also about our non-scientific life! The day before the workshop[…]
