List of virtual talks, seminars, forums
Posted by the Node, on 30 October 2020
Updated 30 October . Let us know if we missed anything
Various organisations and looser assemblies of locked down researchers have begun to put together online seminar and talk series, many of which are open to anyone (usually with registration), and many of which also have previous talks recorded.
Here’s a list of what we’ve found recently, developmental biology and adjacent – please let us know if we missed anything so we can keep it up to date. For upcoming virtual developmental biology conferences/symposia, see our recently updated Events calendar page.
Big news from us is Development presents…, the webinar series hosted each month by a different Development Editor which will be a platform for early career researchers to share their work. As well as the talks, you also have the chance to meet the speakers and other participants at interactive video tables – giving the developmental biology community the chance to network virtually.
The next webinar will be Wednesday 11 November 2020, 19.00 GMT, with Helen Rankin Willsey, Eric Brooks and a third speaker tbc.
Talking about promoting early career researchers, the Society for Developmental Biology in the USA is running a monthly postdoc seminar series. Next one is November 13, speakers TBD (you can see recordings of the October session with Michael Piacentino and Natasha O’Brown on the homepage).
