7th course on Developmental Biology - 2016

The aim of the programme is to provide the participants with a comprehensive coverage of the paradigms, problems and technologies of modern Developmental Biology paying particular attention to stem cells.
Training in theoretical and experimental aspects of normal and abnormal development is developed through a variety of embryonic systems using state-of-the-art instrumentation and methodology.
