YEN2011 Poster

The 3rd Young Embryologist Meeting will gather together embryologists working on a diverse range of systems to gain different perspectives and to get to know what other people are working on.

Everyone is welcome to attend and the meeting is free and open to all.

The full-day meeting begins at 10.30am on Friday May 6th.  It runs until 5pm and we hope to include a buffet lunch and a wine reception.

We hope the meeting will provide a platform for young researchers (preference is given to PhD and Post-Docs) to present their work in a series of 20 minute talks and a poster session.

We will favour the diversity of topics and models in the field of embryology.

Previous meetings in 2008 and 2010 have included talks on neural crest migration, patterning of the cerebral cortex, neural tube morphogenesis, limb development and involved work using mouse, chick, frog, fly and zebrafish models.

Sir John Gurdon

In addition to the talks and poster session we will have a keynote lecture by Sir John Gurdon of The Gurdon Institute at the University of Cambridge, and an open discussion on careers.

The careers discussion will take the form of a panel of three PI’s (Prof Claudio Stern, Prof Jon Clarke, Dr Karen Liu) answering your questions concerning research careers.

Our main interest is to generate a space where students, Post Docs, PIs and everyone else can discover more about people's work and discuss different topics of developmental biology in a relaxed setting. Ultimately we want to strengthen the recently started Young Embryologist Network (YEN) to enhance the research environment for embryologists, so please come!

This meeting is only possible with the generous contribution from King's College London Dental Institute.  We are indebted to Professor Tim Watson, Director of Research KCLDI and Dr Mark Woolford, Director of Education KCLDI for their generous support.
We also grateful for the very generous support from Head of UCL School
of Life and Medical Sciences, Sir John Tooke, Director of UCL Institute of Child Health: Professor Andrew Copp, and Director of the MRC National Institute for Medical Research at Mill Hill, Professor Jim Smith. All of these funding sources are greatly appreciated and enable us to run a full meeting programme.
