This will be the first Developmental Biology Symposium at the Francis Crick Institute.

This two-day meeting will showcase the best in developmental biology across the life course. From embryogenesis through to ageing, areas of current excitement in the field will be highlighted by plenary talks from 15 internationally renowned speakers, along with selected short talks from abstracts.

The symposium will honour the memory of Rosa Beddington FRS, a leading UK embryologist who was head of the Division of Mammalian Development at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research from 1993-2001. Many of Rosa's colleagues and lab alumni will be attending the symposium.
