Area: Cell Biology and Biophysics
Starting date: Summer/Fall 2016
Our team is generally interested in understanding basic mechanisms underlying cell
shape, cell division and polarity. We couple the use of model organisms (yeast and
developing embryos) and biophysical tools (quantitative microscopy, cell
manipulation and modeling) to answer basic questions in morphogenesis. You can
find more information on our current research on our web page:
For this ERC-funded project, we seek one motivated pre-graduate candidate willing
to work in a multi-disciplinary environment. Experience in biophysics, cell and
developmental biology is preferred, but any good application will be considered. If
you are interested, please send a CV to Nicolas Minc: email@example.com
The Developmental Studies Hybridoma Bank (DSHB), a nonprofit NIH National Resource, banks and distributes over 3000 hybridomas and the monoclonal antibodies they produce. The DSHB distributes at cost (e.g., 1 ml of MAb costs $35), on average one eighth the commercial price. The DSHB also provides excellent customer, technical service, select hybridomas and high quality reagents. In this day of shrinking research funds, it should be checked out when ordering MAbs.

Embryology: Concepts & Techniques in Modern Developmental Biology
Course Date: June 4 - July 17, 2016
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: FEBRUARY 1, 2016
Course Website: http://bit.ly/1Myiv33
This course, held each summer at the Marine Biological Lab at Woods Hole, is an intensive six-week laboratory and lecture course for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and senior researchers who seek a broad view of the modern issues of developmental biology and the experimental approaches used to address these ongoing questions.
Course Directors: Alejandro Sánchez Alvarado (HHMI and Stowers Institute for Medical Research) and Richard Behringer (MD Anderson Cancer Center)
Mechanisms of Development, the official journal of the International Society of Developmental Biologists (ISDB) is pleased to announce the preparation of Special Issues including studies from authors affiliated to regional founding societies.
In collaboration with the Latin American Society for Developmental Biology, the first Special Issue of this series will be showcasing “Latin American Developmental Biologists” and will be guest edited by Dr José Xavier Neto from the Brazilian Biosciences National Laboratory (LNBio) and Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM).
Submissions are encouraged from all members of the LASDB, participants of the 8th Meeting of the Latin American Society for Developmental Biology held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, October 20-23, 2015, as well as any other interested authors and collaborators in Latin America.
Original and Review articles are accepted.
All manuscripts will undergo peer-review to determine their suitability for publication.
Submission deadline: 28th February 2016
Notification of final decision: May 2016
Expected publication: July 2016
