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.

Staying connected during the COVID19 pandemic

Posted by on May 21st, 2020

Among many other (many more important) things, pandemic times have meant an end to travel, which for the Development team means no conferences and no lab visits.
