On Wednesday 10 November, Development hosted three talks on stem cells and disease models.
Below you’ll find each of the talks, plus a Q&A chaired by Development Editor James Wells. The next #DevPres webinar will be a zebrafish special to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our Zebrafish Issue. It will be held on 8 December 2021 at 15:00 GMT, chaired by Alex Schier – subscribe to our mailing list for updates.
