Young Embryologist Meeting 2011 (YEM:2011)

Posted by , on 15 February 2011

Young Embryologist Network Meeting (YEM:2011)
Friday 6th May 2011 at King?s College London.
Meeting registration, talk and poster submission – now open.

The 3rd Young Embryologist Meeting will take place on Friday 6th May 2011 at King’s College London (Guy’s Tower, Floor 30). There will be a keynote lecture delivered by Sir John Gurdon, talks, poster session and a careers session with a panel of three PIs (Prof. Claudio Stern, Prof. Jon Clarke and Dr. Karen Liu).

This unique meeting is run by PhD and Post Docs at UCL, King’s and NIMR and aims to create a more interactive research community. Everyone is welcome to attend and the meeting is free and open to all.

We hope the meeting will provide a platform for young researchers (preference is given to PhD and Post Docs) to present their work in a series of 20 minute talks and a poster session. We will favour the diversity of topics and models in the field of embryology (previous meetings have included talks on neural crest migration, patterning of the cerebral cortex, neural tube morphogenesis, limb development and involved work using mouse, chick, frog, fly and zebrafish models).

Our main interest is to generate a space where students, postdocs, PIs and everyone else can listen to other people’s work and to discuss different topics of developmental biology in a relaxed setting. Ultimately we want to strengthen the recently started Young Embryologist Network to enhance the research environment for embryologists, so please come!

If you are interested in giving a 20 minute talk or presenting a poster please see the website for details & send an abstract of your proposal to:
(or see ). Deadline for submissions is March 31st 2011.
