The second webinar in the Development presents… series coincides with the November release of our Special Issue: The Origins and Mechanisms of Developmental Disorders. The Special Issue showcases the role of developmental biologists in addressing developmental disorders – the leading biological cause of death for children of all ages – and the talks in our November webinar come from researchers at the forefront of this field. The webinar will be chaired by John Wallingford, Professor of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Texas at Austin, who is one of the guest editors of the Special Issue together with Sally Dunwoodie, Professor of Medicine at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute.
