Young Embryologist Network Conference 2022
Posted by Jack Morgan, on 15 April 2022
Registration for attendance now extended until the 29th of April!
The Young Embryologist Network conference 2022 (YEN 22) is the 14th iteration of the network’s hugely successful yearly developmental biology meeting. This will be a hybrid conference hosted at the Francis Crick Institute and streamed over Zoom on Monday the 16th of May 2022.
Our meetings provide an opportunity for early-career-stage developmental biologists to share their own research, network and engage with peers and pioneers in the field, with delegates attending from across the globe
We have a varied and exciting programme for YEN 22: Dr. Andrew Gillis (University of Cambridge) and Dr. Kate McDole (MRC LMB) will be delivering talks as two of our invited speakers. Furthermore, we have the pleasure of welcoming Prof. Elly Tanaka (Institute of Molecular Pathology, Vienna) to give the Sammy Lee memorial keynote address. Plus, PhD students and postdocs may submit abstracts for the chance to give a short talk or present a poster.
Moreover, we are immensely proud to be hosting our first “Scientific Perspectives: Working in Science with a Disability” talks at YEN 22. Disability is a tremendous barrier not only to entry, but also to the progression of a scientific career, and researchers with disabilities remain immensely underrepresented at every career stage. Our community could be much better equipped in helping ensure inclusion and equal opportunities for disabled scientists, and so we have invited Dr. Elisabeth Kugler (UCL), Prof. John Hutchinson (RVC) and Dr. Oscar Cazares (UCSF) to share their perspectives and experiences of working in science with a disability. We also have the pleasure of welcoming Dr. Cynthia Andoniadou (King’s College London), who will be delivering the summary address for these sessions.
Abstract submission is now closed but, due to ongoing demand, we have extended the attendance registration deadline to 11:59pm on the 29th of April.
