In these unsettled times, we are all feeling the lack of public seminars and conferences which are so important for intellectual enrichment and scientific interaction. In order to help improve the situation, the IsSDB is initiating a new monthly virtual seminar series featuring exciting lectures by top international and Israeli scientists in the field of Developmental Biology. The seminars will be held at 15:00 Israeli time on the last Tuesday of the month, and following the seminar there will be an opportunity to ask questions and interact with the speaker. Details about how to sign up will be posted soon. We hope you will be able to join us! The first 4 speakers will be:


November 24 Pavel Tomancak, Max Planck Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Dresden, Germany  

December 29 Shalev Itzkovich, Department of Molecular Cell Biology, Weizmann
"Spatial transcriptomics of mammalian tissues"


January 26 Andrea Brand, Gurdon Institute and Wellcome Trust, University of Cambridge, UK

February 23 Ruby Shalom-Feuerstein, Department of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Technion
