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.
