We’ve had over 400 registrations already! For those attending, this post has been updated with an order of play for the day, and the webinar homepage has also been updated with a How To for Remo, our browser-based conference software – no download needed!



Development presents… is a new webinar series showcasing the latest developmental biology and stem cell research. The webinars are chaired each month by a different Development Editor, who invites talks from authors of exciting new papers and preprints. First authors are particularly encouraged to present their work – we hope the series will become a forum for supporting early career researchers. As well as presentations and live Q&A sessions, you’ll also get the chance to meet the speakers and fellow participants at interactive virtual tables.

The first webinar of the series will take place on Wednesday 7 October at 16:00 BST and be chaired by Development’s Editor-in-Chief, James Briscoe (Group Leader at the Francis Crick Institute in London), who has has brought together three exciting talks.

  1. I would very much like to present my recent publication in Cell Stem Cell concerning the role of histone acetyltransferase MOF in regulating metabolism in embryonic stem cells and mouse embryonic diapause. I just wonder if can have a chance to present.
