#preLights turns 4!! And to help them celebrate we hosted a joint event on ‘Promoting yourself as an ECR’ on Wednesday 23 February. The recordings from the event and our panellists answers to the questions that we didn’t have time to address will be available soon. Thanks to everyone involved, especially our panellists, Maria Abou Chakra, Pablo Sáez and Sarvenaz Sarabipour.

It was launched to help promote diversity in selection of reviewers, panellist and speakers for event in developmental and stem cell biology. Read the interesting twitter thread from Michelle Facette on why she thinks it is important.
