The Company of Biologists Workshops provide leading experts and early-career researchers from a diverse range of scientific backgrounds with a stimulating environment for the cross-fertilisation of interdisciplinary ideas. In November, experts will gather in the beautiful surroundings of Wiston House in West Sussex with the aim of ‘Understanding Human Birth Defects in the Genomic Age‘. Organised by Mustafa Khokha, Karen Liu and John Wallingford, the Workshop is an amazing opportunity to explore applied developmental biology.
There are around 10 funded places for early-career researchers available – a fantastic opportunity to share your research with leading scientists in an intimate setting.
Deadline for applications: 12 July 2019.
