A new edition of the annual Young Embryologist Network conference (YEN 2023) will be hosted at the Francis Crick Institute, in London, on the 22nd of May 2023.
YEN conferences, organised by PhD students and postdocs, have massively increased their impact since virtual attendance was offered in 2021. We are committed to providing an opportunity for early-career developmental biologists to share their research, network, and engage with colleagues in the field. Thus, a hybrid format will also be held this year and attendance will be free thanks to the support of our sponsors.
YEN 2023 will cover some of the most exciting topics in the field, including cross-species comparisons, germ-cell development, and stem-cell-based models of development among others. We have the pleasure of welcoming Andrea Pauli (IMP, Vienna), Madeline Lancaster (MRC LMB, Cambridge), Katsuhiko Hayashi (Osaka University), and Henrik Kaessmann (ZMBH, Heidelberg) as invited speakers. Prof. Henrik Kaessmann will give the Sammy Lee memorial keynote address.
Moreover, the highly acclaimed “Scientific Perspectives” talks are back. This year, the session will focus on “Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Science”. Rafael Galupa (CBI, Toulouse) and Alison Forbes (Head of the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion committee at the Crick, London) will share their perspectives and experiences on this important subject.
PhD students and postdocs who want to give a short talk or present a poster may submit an abstract by the 20th of April 2023. Registration will be open until the 9th of May 2023.
