15th International Xenopus Meeting

 

15th International Xenopus Conference

This meeting is of central importance to the Xenopus community and provides outstanding opportunities for interaction, with platform talks and posters presented by students, postdocs, and faculty, plus roundtable career development forums.  This meeting also provides an ideal opportunity to learn about the latest advances in genomics and proteomics, as well as new methodologies that are accelerating research within the Xenopus system. The meeting format has evolved somewhat to better promote the future of the field, including an emphasis on new faces, broader topics and roundtables to promote discussion and career development; we hope that you will make every effort to attend and participate.  A number of travel grants will be awarded to trainees to help make the meeting more affordable.

Submit your abstract between April 9 and June 10.

Conference registration is now open until July 24.
