Writing competition for PhDs & postdocs

In preparation of our upcoming 70th anniversary to be celebrated at the special Spring Meeting in Warwick (April 15th-18th 2018), the BSDB announces a writing competition for its graduate student and postdoc members. We are curious to hear about your thoughts (in not more than 500 words) on one of the following topics:

  • The future of Developmental Biology
  • What Developmental Biology has contributed to society
  • The experiment/paper in Developmental Biology that most inspired you

Further details of the competition will be formally announced shortly, but we thought it might help if we give you some head-start. The deadline will be Sunday, 4th of March 2018, and the winner is going to be announced at the Spring Meeting. The first prize is a free trip to and attendance of the 77th Annual Society of Developmental Biology meeting in Portland, Oregon, USA.

If you have any questions or would like to submit your essays, please contact Alex at students@bsdb.org or Michelle at postdocs@bsdb.org.
