par  SFBD

The French Multi-organization Thematic Institute “Cell biology, development and evolution” (ITMO BCDE), the French Society for Cell Biology (SBCF), and the French Society of Developmental Biology (SFBD) are pleased to announce the meeting “Developmental and Cell Biology of the future”.

This meeting will bring together accomplished and early stage researchers to discuss and define tomorrow’s key aspects of developmental and cell biology.

Wishing to open up in an original way a reflection on the future orientations of biology research, the ITMO BCDE, SBCF and SFBD have entrusted the scientific organization of the congress to eleven selected young researchers (between the 2nd year of their PhD studies and ten years after receiveing their PhD ).

The desire of the organizers is to carry out an open discussion to stimulate innovation and improve transversality and ethic. On this spirit, the meeting will include a round table session to discuss about “The Future of Cell and Developmental Biology”, which will include several board members of the SBCF and SFBD.
