Meeting Flyer

The Gordon Research Conference (GRC) in Developmental Biology, will be held at Mount Holyoke (Massachusetts, USA) on June 25-30, 2017.  The conference programme will features studies on a variety of model organisms to tackle cutting-edge questions in Developmental Biology, e.g. on stem cell niches, regeneration, morphogenesis, self-organisation, and evolution. There will also be a discussion on the impact of Developmental Biology in industry.   A poster is attached.

The exciting programme can be found at:


For the first time since its inception, the Developmental Biology GRC will be preceded by a 2-day Gordon Research Seminar (GRS), a symposium organized by and for young developmental biologists (PhD students and post-docs), which will provide a unique environment for networking and support within our community. 


Another novelty this year is that we have scheduled a “power hour”, an informal gathering intended to support the professional growth of women in our scientific community.

As is the tradition for Gordon Research Conferences, a large number of speaking slots have been set aside for applicants (early application encouraged). Please note that the absolute application deadline has been set to May 28, 2017. Limited financial support will be made available to deserving applicants.

The official contact info for registration is at the GRC website.   But the developmental biologists involved are Jean-Paul Vincent (Crick Institute, UK, Chair) and Dominique Bergmann (Stanford University/HHMI, Vice-chair).
