PhD project in Southern France: quantitative analysis of developmental variability in ascidian embryos

Posted by on April 1st, 2019

Applicants are sought for two 3-year doctoral contracts to work on developmental variability and canalization in Ascidians. Context:   Within each animal species, embryonic development is highly reproducible, ensuring the production of a complex organism with precisely arranged and shaped organs and tissues. This constancy of embryogenesis against genetic polymorphism and fluctuating environmental conditions is[…]

Postdoctoral researcher position in developmental/stem cell biology-University of Sheffield

Posted by on October 6th, 2016

We are currently seeking an independent and motivated scientist to join the research group led by Dr Anestis Tsakiridis ( His work focuses on dissecting the molecular basis of cell fate decisions in the developing embryo and aims to exploit this knowledge for disease-modelling and regenerative medicine applications. The group is particularly interested in the biology of neuromesodermal progenitors[…]

The small beginnings of gastruloids

Posted by on April 1st, 2015

Mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs) are by definition cells that can self-renew (make identical copies of themselves) and specialize into any cell type of the body. Since their discovery, scientists have used them to produce various specialized cell types in culture but also to produce transgenic mouse lines. When injected into a mouse early embryo,[…]

Title: The role and regulation of metabolic reprogramming during successful appendage regeneration Supervisors: Professors Enrique Amaya and Royston Goodacre, University of Manchester Application deadline: January 30, 2015 Description: Many vertebrate species, including fish, amphibians and reptiles, have the ability to regenerate their appendages following amputation [1,2]. The regeneration process coordinates a variety of biological processes,[…]

Biology and maths partner to understand life decisions

Posted by on October 26th, 2014

Starting with the one fertilized egg that we all once were, embryonic development is made of cell divisions and most importantly of cell decisions. These first life decisions are the first steps of the development of various cell types, which will further divide, decide, specialize, organize, form specialized organs and ultimately an entire very complex[…]

Left-right asymmetry, embryonic development, and more

Posted by on August 26th, 2014

Hello there, first time posting on The Node! Every so often Wiley compiles a small selection of recent research on a particular topic, and the most recent is on the topic of developmental biology. This includes some special issues from journals with reviews on: Left-Right asymmetry Embryonic development Cell proliferation and development The first two special[…]
