Statement on the novel coronavirus/COVID-19

Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic we have made the difficult decision to postpone or adapt  the majority of our events until the end of the year. This is in response to delegate welfare concerns regarding safety, travel restrictions and quarantines.

The Development 2020 Meeting will now be held virtually and further details can be found below. We will keep our pages up to date with the latest information.

Should you have any concerns or questions, please contact the  Events Team

What happens at a Journal Meeting organised by The Company of Biologists?

Who better to tell you than someone who has been to one? Antonio Barral Gil, a PhD student at The Spanish Center for Cardiac Research in Madrid, attended Development’s Meeting “From stem cells to human development” in September 2018.

About our Workshops

The Workshops provide leading experts and early career scientists from a diverse range of scientific backgrounds with a stimulating environment for the cross-fertilisation of interdisciplinary ideas. The programmes are carefully developed and are intended to champion the novel techniques and innovations that will underpin important scientific advances.
