The Young Embryologist Network was set up in 2008 by PhD students in the University College London (UCL) Research Department of Cell & Developmental Biology under the guiding hand of Dr Yoshiyuki Yamamoto. The purpose of the network came from a desire to improve communication in the research environment for PhD and Post-Doc embryologists.
UCL has been the host for the first two Young Embryologist Meetings, YEM:2008 & YEM:2010. YEM:2011, hosted at King's College London was a great success with over 100 participants from many UK and international institutions.
We aim to gather together PhD students and research scientists working in the field of embryology and we hope that the Young Embryologist Network will continue to expand and evolve in the future.
