Development in Action
“Development in Action” - DiA - Meetings a series of VERY INFORMAL meetings organised by the members of the SPDB. We get together once every three months (generally alternating between IMM, FCUL, IGC and CEDOC). We also organise a yearly SPECIAL DiA meeting with our “out-of-Lisbon” members in mind.

Meetings and courses of interest
Interdisciplinary Spring School on Plant and Animal Physiology, Montpellier, France, 18 - 24 March 2019
This Spring school is destined to early career researchers (masters students to early stage post-docs) and will focus this year on the genetic and evolutionary mechanisms determining cell and tissue morphogenesis during animal and plant development. It aims at bringing together students of various biological and physical/mathematical backgrounds to breed a new generation of interdisciplinary cellular and developmental biologists.
The course organizers encourage applications from candidates with Biology, Physics, Mathematics or Computer science backgrounds interested to broaden their skills and interests. In addition to formal lectures in the morning, hands-on training in computational simulations, tailored to the students skills, will be provided in the afternoons.
Grants are available. More information here.
Deadline for applications: 15 January 2019
The developing brain in health and disease, University of Oxford, UK. 19 - 20 March 2019
The Academy of Medical Sciences is convening a two day scientific meeting to explore key areas of neurodevelopmental research in a unique forum that promotes discussion and collaboration between disciplines, career stages and sectors.
The meeting will bring together an interdisciplinary mix of researchers, from world leading scientists to early career researchers, as well as other key players in the field, such as funders and industry. One of the key aims will be to highlight the latest advances in neurodevelopmental research and identify key research questions that could bring a real impact to the field. There will be a strong focus on nurturing the next generation of researchers by fostering cross-disciplinary collaborations and engagement with more established researchers.
We welcome researchers from all backgrounds interested in brain development and strongly encourage early career researchers, from PhD level onwards, to attend this meeting. Please note that we might be able to pay for travel and accommodation costs to outstanding early career researchers who wish to attend the meeting.
