Developmental & Perinatal Biology 2018!
August 27-31 – University of Toronto
This is the 22nd Annual Exchange in developmental and perinatal biology between The University of Toronto and The Karolinska Institute. The research course has been developed to provide a broad-based interdisciplinary training for graduate students, research fellows, clinical fellows and residents in the area of developmental biology from both basic science and clinical perspectives. The workshop combines a lecture/seminar program with an active research component. The course is also offered as a part of a Graduate course (PSL1080H) at the University of Toronto and as a Graduate course at the Karolinska Institute. In 2017, the course was held at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, organized by Ola Hermanson. It was attended by 5 Faculty and 16 Trainees from the University of Toronto. From the attendance and success in previous years, it has been clear that there is great interest in this type of summer course. This year we have experienced similar enthusiasm, with 5 Faculty and 12 Trainees attending from Sweden along with 23 Trainees from The University of Toronto. In addition, a large number of Faculty from across the University of Toronto will contribute to the course.
