This popular biennial Canadian meeting showcases national and international excellence in developmental biology research, and is intended to foster better interactions within the developmental biology community through an engaging scientific program.
The goal of the “Research Catalyst Network: Expediting collaboration between basic and clinician scientists in functional studies of novel rare disease genes” is to establish a national consortium that will enable clinical geneticists who are identifying rare disease gene mutations to collaborate with model organism researchers with expertise in the cognate gene’s function. This program will build on Canada’s leadership in rare disease gene identification, extending its involvement into developing treatments and therapeutics for rare diseases.
The Summer Program in Taiwan provides Canadian graduate students (master’s or doctoral level) with first-hand research experience in an international setting.
