Embryonic-Extraembryonic Interactions from genetics to environment

September 10, 2018 - September 13, 2018
Oxford, United Kingdom

We are delighted to announce the 2018 Autumn Meeting supported by the British Society for Developmental Biology that will take place on Monday 10th – Thursday 13th September 2018, at Corpus Christi College, Oxford.

This autumn’s meeting focuses on, “Embryonic-Extraembryonic Interactions: from Genetics to Environment”.  This is the third in a series of international workshops on the extraembryonic-embryonic interface, bringing together researchers that address this topic through a wide array of approaches in diverse research organisms:  from epigenetics to morphogenesis, and from mice and marsupials to beetles and bugs!

It is worth highlighting that for BSDB members there are conference grants for students, post-docs and PIs available that will cover all registration/accommodation expenses. If you are a BSDB member this is a great opportunity to go to an excellent meeting and if you are not member you can become one before the deadline to also benefit from these grants!

The workshop style of the meeting allows for extensive discussion and informal interactions.  In addition to a significant number of short oral presentations from selected abstracts, poster presenters will also have the opportunity to provide two-minute platform introductions to their posters during a dedicated session.  Active, lively participation has been a hallmark of these workshops.

The two previous meetings were in Göttingen in 2015 ( and Leuven in 2011 (
