Cell and Developmental Biology is delighted to announce that Carlos Carmona-Fontaine, who completed his PhD with Prof. Roberto Mayor last year, will be awarded the prestigious Beddington Medal for 2011 by the British Society for Developmental Biology.

Beddington Medal

Carlos will recieve the medal at the BSDB's main meeting in Canterbury, Kent on 29 April, giving a talk entitled "Social interactions in collective neural crest migration". The Beddington Medal is the BSDB's major award to a promising young biologist, awarded for the best PhD thesis in developmental biology submitted in the previous year. 

Carlos published some of his doctoral work in a superb paper in Nature (Vol 456, page 957, 2008) and is now a postdoctoral fellow at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
