Travel awards to participants in the 2016 Woods Hole Embryology course

With the goal of promoting the training of its members, The Spanish Society for Developmental Biology (SEBD) offers a travel award of up to 1000€ for participants in 2016 Embryology Course ( at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. The application deadline for the course is February 1, 2016.

Eligibility: The candidates should (i) be Ph.D. students or have obtained a Ph.D. degree within the last two years, (ii) be (or become) a SEBD member (contact Marian Ros for more information) and (iii) have been accepted in the course.

Applications should be addressed to:

Cellular synapsis for cell-cell signalling

150428_WorkshopCellularSynapse150428_WorkshopCellularSynapseThe objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers who study morphogen signalling, filopodia formation and dynamics, axon guidance and neuronal signalling, exosomes, nanotubes and wavefront-engineering microscopy. This mix of topics and interests, which all pertain to synaptic signalling by neuronal and non-neuronal cells, has not previously been understood to be functionally related, but a workshop that brings them together promises to be an exciting opportunity for cross-fertilization.
