Clock Club Nov 2014

"Clocks, rhythms and sleep" is a new monthly meeting where academics from CDB, NIMR and the London area informally come together to discuss topics relating to biological time and oscillations. Current emphasis is on circadian clocks, sleep, somitogenesis and related cellular oscillations - how they work and how to study them.

The Young Embryologist Network was set up in 2008 by PhD students in the UCL Research Department of Cell & Developmental Biology under the guiding hand of Dr Yoshiyuki Yamamoto. The purpose of the network came from a desire to improve communication in the research environment for PhD and Post-Doc embryologists.
