Last call for abstracts

The 6th Young Embryologist Meeting aims to bring together developmental biologists from across the UK and abroad to discuss their work at a leading UK institution by presenting a talk or a poster. This year, we are pleased to include The Sammy Lee Memorial Lecture presented by Professor Bill Harris (University of Cambridge). We will also have a Q&A session about ‘Careers in Science’. In addition, prizes will be awarded to the best talks and posters, including a medal in memory of Sammy Lee

This unique meeting is run by PhD students and Post Docs at UCL, KCL, NIMR and  Imperial and aims to create a more interactive research community. Everyone with an interest in developmental biology is welcome to attend this free meeting!
We hope the meeting will provide a platform for young researchers (preference is given to PhD and Post Docs) to present their work in a series of 20 minute talks and in the poster session. We will favour diversity of topics and models in the field of embryology.
Our main goal is to generate a space where students, postdocs and PIs can discuss a wide variety of topics in developmental biology in a relaxed setting. Ultimately, we would like to strengthen  the Young Embryologist Network to enhance the research environment for embryologist, so please come!
Registration is free and can be done here:

Deadline for submission is May 19th 2014
