June 2nd - June 13th : A two-week comparitive developmental biology course

Mechanisms of Development in Plants and Animals

Organisers : Pradeep Das (RDP) and Vincent Laudet (IGFL)

As part of the ’UE Europe seminar series ’ the course is structured such that each invitee gives an introductory class in the morning and a normal research seminar in the afternoon. Both are open to all, and they would very strongly encourage Masters and PhD students to attend as many of these as time permits. This year as last year, we have a very exciting list of people coming from all Europe. Come and Enjoy ! - Here is the detailed program !

The introductory classes are at 9:30 and 10:30 in Amphi K (first week) and in Amphi I (second week).

The research seminars are at 13h30 and 14h30 in Salle des Theses.
