In an effort to increase the number of underrepresented minorities (URM) and persons with disabilities entering doctoral programs in pursuit of research careers in developmental biology, the Society for Developmental Biology (SDB) has launched a new three-year National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded project called CHOOSE DEVELOPMENT!
The Society for Developmental Biology participated
in the 2nd New Jersey Science & Engineering Festival
held October 13-14, 2012 in Clifton, New Jersey. The
festival, about forty five minutes outside of New
York City, attracted many students, parents, and
science educators from the community.
The Embryology Course at the Marine Biological
Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts is the
premier comprehensive lecture and laboratory course
in animal developmental biology.

Tom Maniatis (Columbia
University) were awarded the Lasker-Koshland Special
Achievement Award in Medical Science for
their contributions to understanding the nature of
genes and for their exceptional leadership and
citizenship in biomedical science.
