- Background of the meeting
Following the 1987 BSDB Meeting on "Craniofacial Development" organized by Peter Thorogood and Cheryll Tickle, the organizers and other colleagues (Andrew Lumsden, Mark Ferguson, Gudrun Moore, Alisdair Ivens, Julian Lewis and Gillian Morriss-Kay) decided to start holding annual informal meetings to increase communication between laboratories working on various aspects of the development of the head, to offer the opportunity to young scientists to present their work in a friendly and stimulating environment and promote collaborative research.
The group has met annually since 1989, and the initial number of participants, about 20 people, rose very rapidly through word of mouth with more groups asking to be included in the mailing list. Over the last few years there have always been over one hundred people attending the Meeting.
