8th course on Developmental Biology - 2017

The aim of the programme is to provide the participants 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.

Institut Curie and Université Pierre et Marie Curie organize their 8th International Developmental Biology course, in collaboration with the Stowers Institute for Medical Sciences, Kansas City, USA.

The programme is proposed in two versions:
