Development’s biennial meeting, From stem cells to human development, will be taking place in mid-September (11-14) at beautiful Wotton House in Surrey, UK. After a very successful virtual meeting in 2020, we’re excited to be meeting in person again, but we wanted to explore ways of making part of the meeting accessible to the broader community. We’re therefore delighted to announce that we’ll be live-streaming one session of this meeting, and will also be making the recording of the session freely available after the event.
So if you’re interested in human development, please mark your diaries for this special ‘Development presents…’ event on Monday September 12 at 16:00 UK time (15:00 UTC). The event will feature two fantastic talks, followed by a discussion session. You’ll be able to watch the whole session live, and also contribute to the discussion by asking questions (both after each talk and during the panel discussion). We’re hoping to host everything on this page, but please check back here for more information on how to access the event nearer the time.
