2022 Society for Developmental Biology Midwest Regional Meeting Report
A cold wind whipped off Lake Mendota, and the sting of the season’s first snow flurries greeted a crowd of developmental biologists descending upon the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s campus on a Friday afternoon in mid-November. The inclement weather might have been cause for panic or delay in other regions of the country, but not here. This was the 2022 Midwest Regional Meeting of the Society for Developmental Biology.
