YEN Conference 2018: Abstract submission and registration is open!

Posted by , on 11 April 2018

***Abstract Deadline is Saturday, 14th April!***

Young Embryologist Network Conference 2018

14th May 2018

The Francis Crick Institute, London, UK


This year we are pleased to announce Professor Wolf Reik as our keynote speaker. His research group, based at the Babraham Institute, investigates the roles of epigenetic gene regulation in mammalian development.

We are also honoured to have Dr Susan Cox and Dr Germano Cecere as our outstanding invited speakers. Dr Susan Cox, from King’s College London, has a strong background in biophysics and has done quantitative analysis using super-resolution microscopy. Dr Germano Cecere, from the Institute Pasteur, focuses on the characterization of short-RNA-based mechanisms of epigenetic inheritance during animal development and upon environmental changes.

As it is traditional, we will end up the meeting with a panel discussion, this time dedicated to Publishing, Editing and Journals. There we will be able to hear the views and experiences of Jennifer McLennan, Head of External Relations at eLife, Robert Kiley, Head of Open Research at the Wellcome Trust, and Katherine Brown, Executive Editor of Development.

Finally, we are looking for additional talks and posters from PhD students and postdoctoral researches who work on the fields of Evo-Devo, Stem Cell Biology, Embryology or more general Developmental Biology. Experimental and theoretical approaches are equally acceptable.

Whether you want to submit an abstract for a talk or poster, or just attend the meeting, you can register here. Registration is free, and there will be prizes for the best talks and posters.

Deadline for abstract submission is midnight on 14th April 2018.
