“Application for EMBO practical course on 3D Developmental Imaging”

Selected students will be encouraged to bring their own materials (eg., embryos, stains etc) to study, but are required to obtain the authorization for bringing biological materials (fixed & stained materials can be sent prior to the course). Preparation of fixed embryos can be done locally.

For observation of live embryos, we have facilities for rearing sea urchin, drosophila, zebra-fish, chick and mouse embryos, though other models may be possible upon request.
