Following the success of the 2018 North of England Developmental Biology Symposium, we are happy to announce that the 2019 meeting will be held at the University of Manchester in the Michael Smith Lecture Theatre on Monday 21 January (10am to 5pm).
This one-day meeting is sponsored by the Genetics Society and Division of Developmental Biology and Medicine that will bring together researchers from Universities/Research Institutes across the North of England to foster our surprising strength-in-depth in developmental biology.
The symposium itself is a mix of talks/posters from junior and senior developmental biologists followed by an informal reception to facilitate networking. The ultimate aim is to stimulate productive interactions between research groups in the region, with the hope that useful collaborations and exchanges of technology and expertise will result.
Keynote speaker: Corinne Houart (King’s College London)
Ramiro Alberio (University of Nottingham)
Georges Lacaud (CRUK Institute Manchester)
Nancy Papalopulu (University of Manchester)
Marysia Placzek (University of Sheffield)
Betsy Pownall (University of York)
