Event description

Description

This is the first Developmental Biology Symposium to be held at the Francis Crick Institute. It will honour Rosa Beddington FRS, who led the Division of Mammalian Development at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research from 1993 until her untimely death in 2001.The two day conference will include talks from 15 internationally renowned speakers along with selected short talks from abstracts.

Organisers: Alex Gould, JP Vincent,James Briscoe ( Francis Crick Institute) and Rita Sousa-Nunes (KCL)
