Notes from the SDB Board of Directors

The SDB Board of Directors met July 25, 2011 following the annual meeting in Chicago.

SDB members residing in Mexico now included in the Southwest region

To enhance interactions between developmental biologists in Mexico and the US/Canada, the SDB Board of Directors approved including SDB members based in Mexico in the Southwest region. Now members in Mexico will be incorporated into Southwest Regional meetings and sometime in the future it will be possible to have the Southwest Regional meeting in Mexico. The next Southwest Regional meeting will be held in Salt Lake City at the University of Utah in the Spring of 2012.
