Young Embryologist Network
NEW YEM WEBSITE
Seminars and events
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.
UCL has been the host for the first two Young Embryologist Meetings, YEM:2008 & YEM:2010, and we are grateful to UCL staff for their help and support. However, as the network is now multi-institutional and students can be affiliated to any institution, last year’s annual meeting YEM:2011, was held at King's College London.
We hope to encourage as many people as possible to become involved in organising our meetings and seminars. By continually incorporating new people into the group we hope that the network will continue to expand and evolve to encourage the next generation of experimental embryologists.
- To open lines of communication and create a diverse, interactive research community for PhD students, Post-Doc and young PI embryologists; essentially anybody who is at the bench.
- To encourage researchers to think across models and diverse developmental systems.
- To help define and uncover the future direction of the field.
- To promote the importance, and help ensure the continuation of basic research.
- We hope to reach these aims through running the annual Young Embryologist Meeting as well as series of seminars at rotating research institutions (more information to follow!)

Joining the Network
The network is run by, and for PhD students & Post-Doc researchers. If you would like to join the network and keep up to date with events, or if you have any ideas on how you would like it to function then:
