Date: 30th November 2017 Venue: UCL Institute of Child Health, Guilford Street, London, WC1N 1EH Organisers: Nick Greene (UCL), Cynthia Andoniadou (KCL), Andy Copp (UCL)   https://www.ucl.ac.uk/ich/research/developmental-biology-cancer/developmental-biology-birth-defects/mgdw   The Mammalian Genetics and Development Workshop is an annual meeting covering the development and genetics of mammals.  The Meeting is based on the submitted abstracts, and include[…]

Christmas Confetti lights to understand the embryonic origins of blood

Posted by on November 1st, 2017

My PhD focused in deciphering molecular mechanisms implicated in cell cycle regulation in embryonic and adult tissues. As many others in this field I became fascinated by the experiments by Yamanaka and colleagues and this prompted me to transition into the stem cell world. For this reason I joined Shannon McKinney-Freeman’s laboratory in 2012. Here,[…]

Postdoctoral Fellow Position – Genetics of Congenital Craniofacial and Neurodevelopment Malformations

Posted by on October 10th, 2017

An NIH-funded Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the Stottmann lab in the Divisions of Human Genetics and Developmental Biology.  Our interests are in the genetic basis of congenital malformations affecting the forebrain and craniofacial structures. Projects involve characterizing novel genes and mutations identified through forward genetic approaches in both mouse and human. We[…]

Research assistant in Development Biology, Sheffield University

Posted by on August 3rd, 2017

A Wellcome Trust/Royal Society funded Research Assistant position is available in Dr Kyra Campbell’s research group. This is a fantastic opportunity to join the Campbell group, who are focused on identifying the molecular mechanisms underlying epithelial cell plasticity during development and disease. We study how this fundamental property is orchestrated during morphogenesis of the Drosophila[…]

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[…]

PhD and postdoc positions in Luschnig Lab to study tricellular junctions

Posted by on November 22nd, 2016

The group of Stefan Luschnig at the Cluster of Excellence “Cells in Motion” (CiM) and the Institute of Neurobiology, University of Münster, invites applications for a PhD student and postdoc position The positions are available from February 2017 for three years. The Luschnig group investigates developmental, cellular, and molecular aspects of epithelial biology using a[…]

FaceBase: An online resource for craniofacial research

Posted by on August 16th, 2016

In 2009, FaceBase was launched in response to the need for more comprehensive analysis of craniofacial development: with so much craniofacial data being generated, there is a danger of relevant datasets being buried in the avalanche of genomic and other data. FaceBase is a curated, one-stop shop for facial development and research offering the community input and[…]

Postdoctoral position in developmental neurobiology

Posted by on July 7th, 2016

A postdoctoral position is available in the Page laboratory in the Department of Neuroscience at The Scripps Research Institute in Jupiter, Florida to investigate mechanisms of neurogenesis & gliogenesis, axon/dendrite growth and synaptic connectivity in the developing mouse cerebral cortex. A major goal of this project is to understand the influence of genetic risk factors for autism[…]

Sweetening with a pinch of salt: maximized Cas9 efficiency in zebrafish

Posted by on June 14th, 2016

  Alexa Burger, Mosimann lab, Institute of Molecular Life Sciences, University of Zürich, Switzerland. When I first heard about the “new” genome editing method in early 2013 called CRISPR-Cas9, I thought: “Never ever again will I work with targeted nucleases!” Now it’s mid-2016, we published our approaches to maximize Cas9 effectiveness in zebrafish with Development[…]
