Development presents… November webinar videos

Posted by , on 12 November 2020

Yesterday we held the second webinar in our new series, this time coinciding with the publication of our Special Issue on The Origins and Mechanisms of Developmental Disorders and featuring three fantastic talks on the theme.

Here you’ll find the three talks and their live Q&A sessions, moderated by John Wallingford, one of the guest editors of the issue. The talks will be taken down on Thursday 26 November.


Helen Rankin Willsey (postdoc in Matthew State’s lab at UCSF, working closely with Richard Harland’s lab at UC Berkeley)

‘The neurodevelopmental disorder risk gene DYRK1A is required for ciliogenesis and control of brain size in Xenopus embryos’

See Helen’s paper in the Special Issue here.



Eric Brooks (postdoc in Jennifer Zallen’s lab at the Sloan Kettering Institute, New York)

‘Sonic hedgehog signaling directs patterned cell remodeling during cranial neural tube closure’

See Eric’s new paper in eLife here.




Kyle Drake (PhD student in Rahul Kanadia’s lab at the University of Connecticut)
