Read on for our news roundup of the past month, with an emphasis on what has caught our eyes on twitter. This month, we also include a list of meetings with upcoming deadlines, as well as a selection of preLights.
At the beginning of the month, it seemed like everyone was #leavingacademia. Below are a few of our favourite threads that highlight some of the challenges that academics face, but also the upsides of academic research and working with industry.
It has been great to see the return of so many in-person conference. With ‘conference fever’ in mind, we have put together a list of #devbio and #stemcell meeting with upcoming abstract and registration deadlines. You can find a list of upcoming conferences on our events page. If we are missing your event, then please feel free to add it to our planner.
The thread below from Katie Martin includes horror stories that you may (or may not) want to read before attending your next meeting!

Just for fun!
