Preprints hosted[…]

Pandemic networking: meeting people is easy

Posted by on July 22nd, 2020

Registration is now open for our virtual networking event!     With COVID-19 cancelling conferences, researchers have lost one of their best ways to network. So we thought we’d try to help, aided by software that creates a virtual space for researchers to interact via video. At this event you’ll meet other developmental biologists from[…]
