Genetics Unzipped podcast: Making Babies and Getting Organised: Celebrating Hilde Mangold and Salome Gluecksohn-Waelsch

Posted by on September 10th, 2020

In this episode we’re going back to the very beginning, telling the stories of the midwives of the field of developmental genetics, two talented researchers whose work helped to reveal the secrets of life in its very earliest stages: Hilde Mangold and Salome Gluecksohn-Waelsch.

Graduate Student Position in Development of Brain Folding

Posted by on October 3rd, 2019

The Lawton Lab is seeking a talented and motivated graduate student to study the cell and tissue mechanics regulating cerebellar morphogenesis and brain folding.   The beautiful and robust folds of the human cerebral cortex and the cerebellum increase the synaptic volume and compartmentalize the neural circuits. We have previously shown that the murine cerebellum[…]

A PhD position is available in the laboratory of Néva P. Meyer at Clark University in Worcester, MA USA (https://wordpress.clarku.edu/nmeyer/) beginning as early as August 2019 as follows: Spiralians are a great group of animals to study evolution of body plans in part because many spiralian taxa develop via a stereotypic and likely ancestral cleavage[…]

Echoes of “Chromatin-Based Regulation of Development” workshop OR “to TAD or not to TAD”?

Posted by on May 14th, 2019

The non-profit publishing groups can make a real difference The very best part of being a scientist is cracking mysteries of the universe and what is in it. The second best thing about this profession, in my opinion, is being part of a scientific community. Conversations, conferences, workshops, collaborations, networking, support and constant inspiration from[…]

EMBL GROUP LEADER POSITION – Developmental Biology Unit

Posted by on September 5th, 2018

The Developmental Biology Unit seeks to understand the general principles and mechanisms underlying the development of multicellular organisms. Researchers in the unit combine the power of genetic model organisms with quantitative imaging and -omics technologies, synthetic biology, reduced (in vitro) systems and theoretical modelling, to create a cross-cutting approach to modern developmental biology. Research in[…]

Five wonders of the Embryology Course 2018

Posted by on August 20th, 2018

Summer of 2018 will genuinely be the summer to remember for all 24 MBL embryology students. To me, the MBL embryology 2018 course was like a wonderland full of breath-taking experimental adventures, unexpected discoveries, scientific growth and madly passionate researchers. Thus, let me take you on a journey across the five wonders of this course.[…]
