Development presents…A new developmental biology webinar series

Posted by on September 23rd, 2020

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[…]

List of virtual talks, seminars, forums

Posted by on September 2nd, 2020

Updated 02 September. Let us know if we missed anything   Various organisations and looser assemblies of locked down researchers have begun to put together online seminar and talk series, many of which are open to anyone (usually with registration), and many of which also have previous talks recorded. Here’s a list of what we’ve[…]

Deadline approaching for Cell State Transitions Workshop

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[…]

From Stem Cells to Human Development goes virtual

Posted by on June 30th, 2020

When COVID-19 hit Europe, it quickly became clear that holding scientific conferences was not going to be possible (or responsible) for some time, and that we weren’t going to be able to gather in September for Development’s 4th From Stem Cells to Human Development conference. Having been deeply involved in this meeting series since its[…]

Pandemic networking: a virtual experiment

Gone now are the chance (or not so chance) encounters with people you know only from author lists as you stand in line for coffee between talks, in elevators or bars, at poster sessions[…]

Salah Elias introduces a new virtual forum for early PIs in cell and developmental biology

Posted by on June 29th, 2020

Of the many virtual seminar series that have sprung up in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, one in particular caught our eye – the New PIs in Cell and Developmental Biology Forum (you can follow updates and find information by following #NewPICellDev on Twitter). To find out more about the series we met Salah Elias,[…]
