Lighting the Path to Developmental Biology through Clear Direction Mentoring
Last summer, I had the opportunity to share my love for developmental biology and help train the next generation of scholars via a weeklong immersive Internship. The Internship was initiated by Clear Direction Mentoring, a nonprofit organization that provides long-term STEMM mentorship for underrepresented minority students from high school through college.

SDB President's Message: Why Meetings Matter
President, Society for Developmental Biology
Several weeks on, I am still enjoying a feeling of post-meeting
energization generated by participating in the Joint SDB-PASEDB Meeting
in Vancouver. This was an outstanding meeting where a great deal of
excellent science was presented, but it was largely the reconvening with
like-minded colleagues that made me such a happy scientist. Here I
want to share a few thoughts on why that is: why (in my opinion)
Developmental Biology, the official journal of the Society for Developmental Biology, publishes original research on mechanisms of development, differentiation, and growth in animals and plants at the molecular, cellular, genetic and evolutionary levels.
WIREs Mechanisms of Disease
WIREs Developmental Biology, previously published in association with the Society for Developmental Biology, has merged into WIREs Mechanisms of Disease. All SDB members can access WIREs Mechanisms of Disease articles for free by signing in to their SDB Membership Portal.
