From stem cells to human development: registration now open!

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[…]

How to win a conference prize

As any early career researcher will know, attending your first big scientific meeting is a memorable event in your academic life. Last week, I was lucky enough to attend the Gordon Research Conference in Developmental Biology, held in sleepy South Hadley, two hours outside Boston, Massachusetts. For anyone who wasn’t local, the two hour drive[…]

Advocating FOR grads and postdocs: the Future of Research symposium

Posted by on August 27th, 2014

You may have noticed a recent trend in the perception of the graduate and postdoctoral experience, be it in the state of our mental health; or perceived career goal of “academia-or-bust”; or maybe you’re just keeping your pulse on leading US academics warning of the imminent dangers of a flawed biomedical research system or the[…]

So when the opportunity arose to go to this year’s European Evolutionary Developmental Biology (Evo-Devo) meeting in Vienna, I was very keen to attend (although[…]
