The ADBW has been an important and highly successful event in the Australian developmental biology calendar for over 10 years.
Founded by Peter Koopman, Richard Harvey, Patrick Tam, Peter Currie and Rob Saint, the purpose of the workshop is to provide a rich training opportunity to developmental biologists from Australasia by running a small group workshop (limited to 30 delegates) mentored by high profile international and national experts.
The selected participants will interact closely with the mentors over the 3.5 days which will include extended lectures from the invited speakers, technical and scientific workshop sessions, a poster session and social events. A mix of students, postdocs and lab leaders have been chosen on the basis of their interest in the field, track record and potential benefits.
The ADBW provides attendees with an opportunity to advance their knowledge of Developmental Biology in an intense, highly collegiate meeting. In-depth research talks by high profile international and national speakers will be combined with round-table discussions of experimental strategies, model systems and career issues. The meeting is intended for students, postdocs and junior lab leaders.
Registrations close at the end of July.
