Top Developmental Biologists meet in Chile for a laboratory and lecture course: open to Latin American and International applicants

Posted by , on 23 April 2013

Olivier Pourquie, Nipan Patel, Claudio Stern, John Wallingford, Mary Mullins, Alejandro Sanchez-Alvarado, Andrea Streit, among other will teach, hands-on, the paradigms, problems and technologies of modern Developmental Biology. The course will start with a plenary lecture by Scott Gilbert about the history and concepts in Developmental Biology.

The course will take place in the summer of the south hemisphere (5th to 17th January 2014), in the beautiful fishing village of Quintay, at the Centre for Marine Biological Research (CIMARQ, in Spanish).   The best Latin American students in this course will be selected, including a fellowship, to participate at the Embryology course in Woods Hole.

The course is intended for Latin American and non-Latin American applicants. We believe that the interaction between the students will establish links and promote a culture of international collaboration that will further contribute to the field.

Fellowships will be available

DEADLINE 31st July 2013
